Under the joint Commonwealth, state and territory governments' Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements (NDRRA), assistance is provided to alleviate the financial burden on states and territories. It also supports the provision of urgent financial assistance to disaster-affected communities. Under these arrangements, the state or territory governments determine the level of NDRRA assistance and what types of assistance is available to individuals and communities.

This website contains the information and links to assist individuals, primary producers, small businesses and non-profit organisations that have been directly affected by a natural disaster. The site also provides guidance to Northern Territory Government agencies, councils and shires on NDRRA.

There are four Categories of Assistance available under NDRRA and each category has various relief measures for activation following an eligible natural disaster. Not all options are activated for every disaster as different options are activated on a case-by-case basis.
