If you require flood recovery grant assistance due to the February-March weather events, be sure to explore the other funding opportunities available to your organisation. 

Not-for-profit community organisations can apply for up to $3000 to fund projects that have arisen as a consequence of failure, damage or loss of essential equipment or infrastructure due to unforeseen circumstances.

During a declared Disaster Situation applicants can apply for other costs (including, but not limited to, operational costs when an organisation demonstrates financial hardship).

Funding must be for projects or costs which are:

  • deemed to be an 'emergency' (requiring rapid response).
  • significantly impacting the organisation's ability to continue to operate.

Projects that are covered by insurance are not eligible.
