Detailed flood studies – co-funding

Detailed studies will be undertaken in communities with out a recent flood study and have been prioritised through the flood risk assessment process as being at risk from flooding. The studies will be jointly funded between the Commonwealth, State and local governments in conjunction with the community protection planning for flooding.
