The Resilient Homes Program and the Resilient Land Program are two key elements to the combined state and federal government’s response to the devastating floods in the region in February and March this year.

$800 million has been put forward to fund the two programs that seek to facilitate quick land release across the region for housing and house buybacks, house raising, and house retrofitting.

Those interested in attending can register on the NRCC’s website or just show up and register on the spot. The sessions have a maximum attendance of 80 people.
