About the program
The Flood Recovery Program of the North East Catchment Management Authority (CMA) oversees the provision of the Federal Government's Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements (NDRRA) funding to assist communities in the recovery process and to alleviate damage experienced as part of a natural disaster.
Following the 2016 flood impacts, North East CMA was successful in obtaining funding for over 60 sites across the region. This funding has enabled the CMA to undertake repairs to impacts on essential public infrastructure (largely erosion control and repair works) at sites including bridges, roads, culvets and formal levees. North East CMA is using additional flood recovery funding from the Victorian Government to complete activities and works that are not eligible under NDRRA, this includes fencing and revegetation to protect structural works and high priority erosion sites.
Flood recovery works
As we near the end of the NDRRA funding program, 94% of works have been completed and the remaining 6% of sites are in progress. All works funded under NDRRA are on target to be completed by the program deadline of 30 June 2019.
An update on the progress of current works is available in the January 2019 Flood Recovery Update. Regular updates are provided and can be located under the newsletters section of the media and resources hub of this page.
