The NSW Reconstruction Authority (RA) has opened a mandatory Expression of Interest (EOI) for the Disaster Ready Fund (DRF) Round 2. Funded by the Australian Government, the DRF is the Federal Government’s flagship disaster resilience and risk reduction initiative, delivering projects that support Australians to manage the physical and social impacts of disasters.
The NSW EOI will be open for submissions until 12 noon on Friday 8 December 2023 via the SmartyGrants platform.
Potential applicants are strongly encouraged to read the NSW EOI Guidance to assess whether their project is eligible to apply for funding. EOIs must meet eligibility and screening criteria in order to be considered to submit a final proposal. Applicants who are invited to submit a final proposal will be notified in January 2024 (TBC).
For any questions that are not addressed on the website, please contact [email protected].
