Disaster recovery funding
When a natural disaster occurs local governments are required to take certain disaster recovery measures for the protection of the public and to restore local government service delivery and infrastructure.
Some of the expenditure for those measures may be eligible for funding from the Northern Territory Government, through the Department of Local Government, Housing and Community Development.
These guidelines and templates clarify the funding available for disaster recovery activities and assist councils with the preparation of claims. They are based on the June 2018 Commonwealth Government Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA).
