Under the Country Fire Authority Act 1958, CFA receives funding of annual estimated expenditure through the State Government via the Fire Services Property Levy. CFA also generates a lesser amount of revenue from a number of internal activities.
Total budgeted income for the 2013-14 year is $473m, comprised of $448m in State Government contributions, and $25m of internally generated revenue (fees and charges, interest, donations, and sales of goods and services).
CFA applies its funding to the delivery of prevention, preparedness, response and recovery, and organisational support services for fires and other emergencies in the country area of Victoria.
