Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DFRA 2018)

The DFRA documentation process can be taxing if you are inexperienced with its operation. WML has been involved with Disaster Recovery throughout the state, having worked in the Murchison, Goldfields, Esperance, South West and Wheatbelt regions in the last few years.

MRWA and OEM unofficially commented on our work in Lake Grace and noted it was some of the best work they have seen and experienced during the repair works season for AGRN 743. This comment and the fact that DFES commissioned us to produce the current set of tools and templates released with the DRFA documentation in October 2018, demonstrates that WML is amongst the leaders when it comes to flood restoration work.

We are well versed in helping local governments satisfy agency eligibility criteria. We provide complete management of grant claims and acquittal processes, including detailed compilation of evidence and timely submissions to meet cashflow needs.
