Record Investment in Flood and Disaster Mitigation Projects (Australia)

Giant earthen levees will rise, new drainage systems will be built and more early warning systems deployed through the Newman Government’s latest record investment in flood and disaster mitigation projects to protect Queensland families.

Local Government, Community Recovery and Resilience Minister David Crisafulli said more than 40 councils would spend almost $52 million from the 2014-15 Disaster Mitigation and Resilience Funding program on more than 80 projects.

Our strong plan to protect Queensland communities means we are working with local councils to literally move heaven and earth to protect and prepare families, homes and livelihoods,” Mr Crisafulli said. “Over the next few days and weeks we will announce projects to protect hundreds of homes and businesses across Queensland that will provide permanent relief to local families that have lived for many years in fear of what Mother Nature might bring.

The 2014-15 Disaster Mitigation and Resilience Funding program is being delivered through the Local Government Grants and Subsidies Program-Flood Response, Royalties for the Regions and the joint Federal and State National Disaster Resilience Program.
