Queensland Resilience and Risk Reduction Fund 2020-21

About the Queensland Resilience and Risk Reduction Fund 2020-21 (QRRRF)

More than 80 projects across Queensland have been approved for a total of more than $19 million through the latest round of the Queensland Resilience and Risk Reduction Fund (QRRRF).

$19.1 million was made available through the fund this year (2020-21).

This consisted of $13.1 million joint funding under the QRRRF ($8.3 million from the Queensland Government and $4.8 million from the Commonwealth) and a further $6 million under the Commonwealth Government’s Managing Disaster Risk program to support 14 communities identified by the Commonwealth as hardest hit by the 2019 North and Far North Queensland Monsoon Trough.

In total, 50 of Queensland’s 77 councils, as well as one town authority, three state agencies, one university and 12 not-for-profit organisations, have been approved for funding in 2020-21.
