Disaster assistance for North and Far North Queensland

Disaster assistance has been made available for communities in North and Far North Queensland impacted by severe weather and flooding brought on by Tropical Cyclones Penny and Owen in December and early January.

Assistance is being provided through the jointly funded Commonwealth-Queensland Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA).

This funding will help cover the costs of disaster response activities and restoring essential public assets damaged by the cyclones.
