Queenslanders whose homes were damaged by recent floods can now register to access grants to raise, repair, retrofit or have their home voluntarily bought back.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the $741 million Resilient Homes Fund would help make Queensland homes more flood-resilient.

“This is the largest home resilience program of its kind to ever be delivered in Australia,” the Premier said.

“We can’t stop floods from occurring but we can take steps to reduce their impact.”

Minister for Public Works Mick de Brenni urged flood-affected Queenslanders within the 37 eligible local government areas who were interested in a voluntary buy-back, house-raising or retrofitting for resilience to come forward and register their details.

This will trigger the start of the process.

Eligible areas include the council areas of the South Burnett, Cherbourg, Gympie, North Burnett, Somerset, Toowoomba and Western Downs.
