Disaster Recovery Funding
During the reporting period, new Disaster Recovery Funding Guidelines for local governments in the Northern Territory were established. The guidelines align with the new Commonwealth Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements that came into effect on 1 November 2018.
Along with the guidelines, online templates were developed to help councils with claims after a disaster event has occurred.
Revised requirements for local governments under the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangement Guidelines for the local government sector was issued by the division and published on the department’s webpage.
