Northern Territory Disaster Resilience Emergency Volunteer Fund (DREVF)

The Northern Territory Government in partnership with the Commonwealth Government under the Natural Disaster Resilience Program has established the Northern Territory Disaster Resilience Emergency Volunteer Fund (DREVF).

The DREVF focuses on emergency management volunteers in recognition of their needs and the significant front line role they play in disaster resilience building and emergency management within our communities.

The DREVF will provide approved projects with up to $75,000 GST inclusive.

Organisations eligible to apply for funding under the DREVF must:

Alternatively a parent agency or local government department agency that has a responsibility for an emergency volunteer group can submit an application on behalf of that group or may apply for funding should the project outputs directly benefit emergency volunteers within their organisation.

Joint applications from eligible organisations are encouraged, although one organisation must be nominated as the lead for the application.

Only incorporated units are eligible to receive funding directly.  If your unit is not incorporated you must seek sponsorship from your parent agency or another local organisation.
