The Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA) can be activated following a eligible disaster event, to provide funding and support to Queensland communities.

It includes filters to highlight specific council areas or disaster events, or to see what funding is eligible for who, such as measures available, for councils, individuals, small businesses or primary producers.

About activations

Activating the joint State and Australian Governments Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA) provides disaster relief and recovery payments and infrastructure restoration to help communities recover from the effects of natural disasters and terrorist acts. 

The DRFA can be activated following a eligible disaster event, with damage, loss and personal hardship information provided by state agencies and local governments.

Activation of the DRFA allows for eligible expenditure to be reimbursed by QRA to eligible state agencies and local governments, and for loans or grants to be provided to eligible individuals, not-for-profit organisations, primary producers and small businesses.
