Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA)

From 1 December 2019, responsibility for Victoria’s administration of the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements moved from the Department of Treasury and Finance to Emergency Management Victoria.  There have been no changes to the processes for submitting or finalising claims. The team can be contacted on ndfa@emv.vic.gov.au (External link) for further information.

Natural Disaster Financial Assistance for local councils is provided to assist in the recovery process and to alleviate some of the financial burden that may be experienced following a natural disaster, in accordance with Commonwealth-State Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements (NDRRA). Following the process outlined on these pages will allow us to process your claim quickly.
