The ALRS assists flood-affected landowners and communities through funding projects aimed at rehabilitation of land and stream systems damaged as a result of the June 2016 floods. The focus of the program is to restore the capacity of the primary production sector and reduce impacts of future floods on productive land.
The scheme was open to landowners and communities in the twenty local government areas affected by the June 2016 flood. (Break O'Day; Burnie; Central Coast; Central Highlands; Circular Head; Derwent Valley; Devonport; Dorset; George Town; Glamorgan-Spring Bay; Huon Valley; Kentish; Latrobe; Launceston; Meander Valley; Northern Midlands; Southern Midlands; Waratah-Wynyard; West Coast; West Tamar).
The scheme targets private property and adjacent areas that have suffered physical damage as a result the floods or areas where future flooding may present a risk to primary production.
