The recovery works are jointly funded by the Australian and Queensland Governments through the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA).

Resilience works on the Mount Lindesay Highway and Lamington National Park Road are part of the 2021–22 Betterment Program to build back better and improve the resilience of the road network. The extraordinary disaster assistance is being provided through the jointly funded Commonwealth-State Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA).
