The Northern Rivers Reconstruction Corporation has released details of the Resilient Homes Program for flood affected Northern Rivers home owners.
The Resilient Homes Program will offer eligible homeowners one of the three available measures, based on expert 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.
