Budget 2024-25 – Information and Resources for Media

Budget 2024-25, for the third consecutive Budget, invests in measures that address the increase in severe and frequent natural hazards brought on by climate change.

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

The 2024-25 Federal Budget:

  • Delivers a greatly enhanced national aerial firefighting and broader emergency response capability, increasing funding by $35 million over the next two financial years;
  • Provides almost $27 million over 3 years to sustain and mature the national Stockpile of emergency goods and services for use by state and territory governments during large scale and prolonged disasters;
  • Invests in mental health support for emergency services workers; and
  • Secures ongoing funding for the National Emergency Management Agency so that it will continue in its role as a standing entity enhancing natural disaster resilience and recovery and long-term disaster risk reduction.
