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.

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.
