The Natural Disaster Risk Reduction Grants Program (NDRRGP) is a competitive grants program that aims to support Tasmanian communities to implement the National Disaster Risk Reduction Framework (NDRRF) and the goals of the Tasmanian Disaster Resilience Strategy 2020-2025.

Many natural hazards are becoming more frequent and intense. More people and assets are exposed and vulnerable to these hazards. As a result, the cost of disasters is increasing for all sectors of society – governments, industry, business, not-for-profit, communities and individuals. Prioritising risk reduction measures will facilitate a comprehensive approach to addressing the causes of disaster risk, rather than only dealing with the symptoms after the disaster event.

The NDRRGP distributes the National Partnership Agreement funding for natural disaster risk reduction initiatives delivered by state agencies, local government and volunteer groups.

The 5-year agreement delivers $5.22 million of Commonwealth funding into Tasmania with successful applicants required to match the funding with cash and/or in-kind contributions.

This grants program is now closed. We are waiting on guidance from the Commonwealth on future programs that may become available.

The Disaster Ready Fund is an alternative grant funding option for projects that build resilience to natural disasters. Funding decisions are made by the Commonwealth, with the grants program administered by the Department of Premier and Cabinet.
