Projects delivered under the 2018-19 NDRP will implement sustained resilience or disaster mitigation strategies that will directly benefit the WA community. It is intended that projects will reduce identified risks and close capability gaps, in an effort to reduce future post-disaster funding needs.

​2.   To support projects that address the direct and indirect costs of disasters in an effort to reduce the future response and/or recovery spend.           
      ​These projects should:​​​
           a.  ​address extreme, high and medium risks identified as part of the SEMC's State Risk Project and/or​
           b.  address capability gaps identified through the SEMC's Emergency Preparedness reporting and/or​
