Resilient Homes

The Resilient Homes workstream aims to improve the resilience of homes in high-risk flood areas in the Northern Rivers and help fast-track the supply of land and housing in the region through the Resilient Homes Fund.

The fund has been developed to improve the resilience of homes in high-risk flood areas in the Ballina, Byron, Clarence Valley, Kyogle, Lismore, Richmond Valley, and Tweed local government areas.

Currently, the Resilient Homes workstream, also known as the Resilient Homes Fund, is made up of 2 programs: 

  1. The $700 million Resilient Homes Program is 50:50 co-funded by the Australian Government and NSW Government. 
  2. The $100 million Resilient Lands Program is fully funded by the NSW Government.

Resilient Land Program

The Resilient Lands Program encompasses  place-based strategy, policy and planning to enable the Northern Rivers communities to build back better. 

A key component of the Resilient Lands Program is a process to identify flood-safe land suitable for redevelopment to help relocate Northern Rivers residents impacted by the 2022 floods.

Resilient Homes Program

The Resilient Homes Program is providing financial assistance to homeowners to improve the flood-resilience of residential properties in the Northern Rivers.
