  • Structural assessments, Make-safe, and Homes at Home
    • The first step to register for a structural assessment is through Emergency Recovery Victoria’s (ERVs) Structural Assessment program.
    • If the structure is found to be repairable, the Make-safe program is free for people whose properties were not insured for flooding.
    • Once your Make-safe works have been completed, you will be issued with a completion certificate.
    • You will then be contacted by ERV, who may tell you about whether you are eligible for other support like the Homes at Home program. Once you apply, it is expected to take approximately four weeks to assess your eligibility for the program.

Your health and safety
