The Resilient Homes Program will offer eligible homeowners one of the three available measures, based on expert property assessments, flood impact severity data, safety risks and potential future flood levels:
- Home buybacks – the homeowner receives a payment for the purchase of their house and land, or
- Home raising – funding is committed to elevate liveable areas above a property-specific flood level, or
- Home retrofit – funding is committed to retrofit and/or repair liveable areas to improve the resilience of these areas for future floods.
These investments will be complemented by Resilient Land Program.
