Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements

Financial support from Federal and State Governments is critical to enable Local Governments to restore public assets following disasters such as floods, cyclones and bushfires.  The Federal Government will implement new funding arrangements for all eligible disasters from 1 November 2018.  The details are available here

The Western Australian Government has developed systems, processes, guidelines, templates and supporting information to facilitate implementation of these new Disaster Recovery Funding  Arrangements (DRFA – WA).

These and a series of updates for Local Governments are being regularly released and are available here.

A webinar giving an overview of the new arrangements is available here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AbzcGMFJPW0

State Road Funds to Local Government Agreement

The State Road Funds to Local Agreement provides an allocation of funds to Local Governments in Western Australia for the improvement and maintenance of roads and bridges. The quantum of funding in the Agreement is based on a percentage of motor vehicle licence fee collections by the State Government. The Agreement is intended to ensure that the available funds are allocated across the State of Western Australia, focusing on areas of strategic importance and areas that will provide maximum benefit. The State Road Funds to Local Government Procedures Manual provides the details concerning the programs, administration and distribution of the available funds.

The principles in the Agreement are put into practice through the governance provided by the Regional Road Groups and the State Road Funds to Local Government Advisory Committee.
