House raising and the Resilient Homes Program

The Northern Rivers Reconstruction Corporation have announced the Resilient Homes Program.

About the Resilient Homes Program 

The Resilient Homes Program provides financial assistance to homeowners to improve the flood-resilience of residential properties in the Northern Rivers.

The Resilient Homes Program will offer eligible homeowners one of the three options, based on property assessments, flood impact severity data, safety risks and potential future flood levels:

  • Home buybacks – the homeowner receives a payment for the purchase of their house and land, or  
  • Home raising – funding is committed to elevate liveable areas above a property-specific flood level, or 
  • Home retrofit – funding is committed to retrofit and/or repair liveable areas to improve the resilience of these areas for future floods.

We will continue to process incoming developments applications as normal.
