What is ‘flood resilience’?
Flood resilience is the ability to prepare for, live through and then return to normal household routines following a flood— with the least amount of disruption.
How does the program work?
The program is being piloted in several Brisbane locations that have a history of frequent and severe overland flooding. The program is delivered in three stages:
- Home Service – a free, in-home assessment of your property’s flood resilience
- Home Service Recommendations – possible suggestions of building or design works to increase the flood resilience of your property
- Incentive Scheme – if design or building recommendations are made, you may be eligible for financial assistance through the Incentive Scheme
