ABOUT THE GUIDE

The Framework is designed to help homeowners understand how their homes may be improved to achieve greater flood resilience under the Home Retrofit and/or the Home Raising streams.

The resource provides examples of flood resilient design approaches to inform homeowners and contractors of potentially eligible activities under the Resilient Homes Program. It also includes examples of different resilient design approaches, for different house types, and provides helpful design checklists.

THE BENEFITS OF A FLOOD-RESILIENT HOME

Adapting your home for flood-resilience can:

  • Minimise the chance of flood damage to your property.
  • Minimise the costs and inconveniences of getting your life back to normal after flood events.
  • Save you in the long-term from having to pay for repetitive repairs to your home following flood events.
  • Prepare your home for changing flood conditions in the future, particularly from climate changes.
