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 income for the 2016-17 year was $590.5m, comprising $557.8m in Government and statutory funding, and $32.8m 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.
