Flood Resilient Homes Program
The Flood Resilient Homes Program is an initiative developed by Brisbane City Council and delivered by its sustainability agency, CitySmart. This pilot program is designed to help residents prepare for, and recover from, overland flow flooding events.
The program is being trialled from June 2018 to June 2019 in locations across the city that have a history of frequent and severe overland flow flooding. This pilot stage of the program will be open to eligible properties by invitation only.
Pilot areas have been selected because they are regularly and severely impacted by overland flow flooding. These areas experience a 50% chance of flooding from overland flow every year and are located across the Brisbane Local Government Area, in upper, middle and lower parts of catchments.
The Flood Resilient Homes Program consists of a free in-home service, a free tailored property report and an incentive scheme for eligible properties.
