Toowoomba Regional Council will receive a total of $275,000 through the jointly funded State-Federal Government Queensland Resilience and Risk Reduction Fund (QRRRF).

The Council will receive $150,000 towards flood early warning systems and flood resilience programs, and $125,000 to hire a resilience and recovery officer.

The funding is part of an almost $9.6 million investment in 49 projects to improve local disaster resilience and risk reduction across the State.

QRRRF is jointly funded by the State Government ($8.3 million) and the Federal Government ($4.8 million) and is administered by the Queensland Reconstruction Authority.

Earlier this year, Cherbourg Council received $31,352 in resilience funding from the QRRRF to provide an emergency power supply for the Cherbourg Council Chambers which serves as the town’s Disaster Control Centre.
