Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA)
The Australian Government Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA) came into place on 1 November 2018. The DRFA replaced the previous Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements.
The DRFA is joint Commonwealth and State government funding, providing financial assistance to help communities recover from eligible disasters.
State funding for non-DRFA eligible disasters will continue to be administered under the State Disaster Relief Arrangements (SDRA), a wholly state funded program that may be activated for all hazards to provide assistance to alleviate personal hardship and distress.
Guidelines for Queensland
There are two versions of disaster funding guidelines that detail the activation, eligibility and other requirements for both the DRFA and SDRA within Queensland. Please select the guidelines for the appropriate date range of the disaster event:
- Queensland Disaster Funding Guidelines (QDFG) 2021 for events that occur from 1 July 2021 onwards
- Queensland Disaster Relief and Recovery Guidelines (QDRR) 2018 for disaster events that occurred between 1 November 2018 and 30 June 2021 inclusive.
