Feedback invited for disaster funding review

Local government feedback is invited on the Federal Government’s independent review of Commonwealth Disaster Funding. 

The review aims to understand and define the Government’s role in Australia’s disaster funding environment and will consider how investment can be optimised for local communities. 

To be led by Mr Andrew Colvin AO APM, the review will also explore the most effective ways for the Government to support communities through funding for state and territory governments, local governments, businesses and community organisations for natural disaster management.  

The goal is to ensure Australians impacted by disasters are treated fairly and governments can respond quickly and appropriately, for communities to build back better.
