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, including COVID-19, 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.
