Ab​​out this round

The current agreement sets out to distribute $1.4 million to WA via a competitive grants round that will support the priorities of both the State and Commonwealth governments.

Eligible organisations capable of implementing sustained resilience programs or disaster mitigation strategies that will directly benefit the WA community, are strongly encouraged to submit an application.  

The aim of NDRP is to deliver projects that reduce identified risks, and close capability gaps, to reduce future post-disaster funding needs.  Projects to enhance natural disaster resilience for at risk communities, including the disabled, Indigenous and Culturally and Linguistically Diverse communities, and projects designed to attract, support and retain volunteers are encouraged.

Organisations are eligible to apply if they work within the WA Emergency Management framework and includes Local and State Governments and not-for-profit organisations.
