This study aimed at analyzing rent‐seeking activities in the course of declaring special disaster districts, that is to say, a representative budgetary support system of disaster management in a viewpoint of rent‐seeking theory focusing on media and internet broadcasted cases to present policy directions for problems and improvement that the budgetary support system of disaster management might have. The results of this study show that in case of Korea, special disaster districts are declared almost every year, and that in the process, it appears that suffering districts of disasters demand more of special disaster district declaration. It is analyzed that ways of making demands appear to be types of making statements and collusion of local self‐governing bodies, and that they are proceeded with the types of proposals for the National Assembly through Assembly members, leading to information perversion for damage restoration cost estimation, injustice of enforcement, decays and misconducts, which brings about a social waste. Accordingly, it is necessary to clarify procedural provisions about making proposals of special disaster district declaration regarding the system of special disaster district declaration, and to prepare solutions to protect rash demands for special disaster district declaration by granting compulsive power to the application of the system. Also, it is suggested that escaping from uniformly declaring types which indiscreetly include a small‐scale disaster district with a theory of equipoise when the declaration is made, it is necessary to prepare a reasonable system to asses according to the extent and dimension of disaster, and to reinforce management regulations for practicing monetary support.
