National Emergency Management Projects 2015—16

In August 2015, $3.6 million across twenty-two projects was provided under the National Emergency Management Projects grants programme for the 2015-16 financial year. This funding will assist Australian communities to better prepare for, respond to and recover from natural disasters and emergencies. These projects will help strengthen the nation's disaster resilience by supporting measures to strengthen communities, individuals, businesses and institutions to minimise adverse effects of disasters on Australia.

These national projects are administered through the Attorney-General's Department as part of the Disaster Resilience Australia Package.
