Local government trigger points
Local government trigger points apply to:
- Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA) Reconstruction of Essential Public Assets (REPA) relief measure, which includes Emergency Works and Immediate Reconstruction Works
- Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements (NDRRA) REPA relief measure, including REPA Emergency Works and restoration works.
Trigger points are calculated based on a percentage of net general rates, and are capped at $2.2 million.
Trigger points have two purposes:
- Eligible REPA damage must exceed a local government’s trigger point for it to be activated for REPA under the DRFA and the NDRRA.
- A local government must contribute up to its trigger point amount for eligible works above.
