Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements

Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements

The new Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements have now commenced and are referred to as the DRFA-WA in Western Australia.

The documents can be found at the links below, but please be patient as the documents have a number of hyperlinks and can take time to load.

A DRFA-WA Guideline and suite of Factsheets and Templates have been developed to assist communities understand the measures available and help asset owners interpret the requirements when undertaking the restoration of essential public assets.

The new arrangements replace the Western Australia Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements (WANDRRA), applying to all disaster events from 1 November 2018.

Disaster events proclaimed under WANDRRA (up to 31 October 2018) will continue to be administered under the NDRRA until 2020. Main Roads WA remains the key support agency and primary contact for WANDRRA road network enquiries and local government WANDRRA claims.

A DRFA-WA Guideline and suite of Factsheets and Templates have been developed to assist communities understand the measures available and help asset owners interpret the requirements when undertaking the restoration of essential public assets.

For all queries regarding existing or future WANDRRA claims related to road network restoration, Main Roads WA is still to be contacted in the first instance.
