From 1 December 2019, responsibility for Victoria’s administration of the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements moved from the Department of Treasury and Finance to Emergency Management Victoria. There have been no changes to the processes for submitting or finalising claims. The team can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
A copy of the DRFA can be found on the Disaster Assist website.
Victoria has developed documents that align to the DRFA guidelines issued by the Commonwealth Government. The documents provide assistance in seeking reimbursement for essential public asset reconstruction works (Category B) with the examples focusing on local government infrastructure.
The documents also reference tools, forms and templates are to be used to ensure provision of appropriate information required by the Victorian and Commonwealth Governments to assess the claims.
The documents are subject to updates on a regular basis. Please make sure you are using the latest version of the documents.
