Federal Budget

Budget 2024-25

With the Federal Budget 2024-25, for the third Budget in a row, the Australian Government has invested in measures that address the increase in severe and frequent natural hazards brought on by climate change.

In this Budget, the investment includes a focus on enhanced emergency response capabilities and risk reduction and resilience at national, community and individual levels.

In this Budget the Australian Government has also committed additional funding to sustain the National Emergency Management Agency’s (NEMA’s) operation with $188.2 million over 4 years and indicative ongoing funding of $48.2 million from 2028/29.

Budget 2023-24

The Federal Budget 2023-24 delivered strong investments in emergency management, building on the establishment of the National Emergency Management Agency and the up to $1 billion Disaster Ready Fund.

This investment helped ensure a cohesive approach to natural hazard preparedness and emergency response and recovery.

In the previous year, nearly 70 per cent of Australians had been impacted by storms, floods, cyclones and bushfires and the Australian public expected the Commonwealth to do more to improve the resilience of Australian communities.

The Australian Government took decisive action through greater investment in risk reduction and coordination of all-hazard preparedness, response and recovery.
