Australian outback bush fires
  • Record $7.5 million to be distributed to 26 local governments across Western Australia to reduce bushfire risk.
  • More than 1100 bushfire mitigation activities funded as part of the State Government's commitment to bushfire mitigation.

Twenty-six local governments from the Great Southern, Goldfields, Pilbara and Perth areas will share in the multi-million-dollar investment, through the Mitigation Activity Fund grants program.

The funding will support local governments to conduct more than 1100 mitigation activities in high bushfire-risk areas on State-owned land, including mechanical treatments to reduce fuel levels, the creation of firebreaks and planned burns.

Funding for mitigation activities has been available to local governments with endorsed Bushfire Risk Management Plans since the program's inception in 2017.

Local governments can get more information on how to prepare a Bushfire Risk Management Plan for future Mitigation Activity Fund grant rounds.
