Disaster assistance for North Stradbroke (Minjerribah) Island
Disaster assistance has been provided to Redland City Council to help cover the cost of fighting bushfires on North Stradbroke (Minjerribah) Island and its impact on the community.
Fighting bushfires on islands such as North Stradbroke present unique challenges and cost for councils, and this funding will support Counter Disaster Operations to ensure the community is not unduly burdened.
Assistance is being provided through the jointly funded Commonwealth-State Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA) and is separate from the assistance already available for communities in Central Queensland.
