The NDRRA invested in excess of $7.5 billion in Queensland recovery in 2011, while the Natural Disaster Resilience Program (NDRP) invested $44 million across five years in Queensland, the equivalent to approximately $9 million invested during the disaster year (McGowan, 2012).
Nevertheless, the main source of financial assistance for recovering from natural disasters in Australia is the Commonwealth Government, and its funding is allocated through NDRRA, which was 'designed to protect community infrastructure' rather than assist homeowners (Biggs, 2012).
NDRRA assistance includes personal hardship and distress assistance, concessional interest rate loans of up to $250,000 and freight subsidies of up to $5000, Tier 1 clean up recovery grants of up to $5000 and Tier 2 grants of up to $20,000 for primary producers and small businesses.
