2013 Disaster Recovery Programs
Updated: February 27, 2014
The February 27, 2014 deadline for disaster recovery assistance for north-west Alberta property owners is now passed.
How it works
Disaster recovery programs (DRPs) provide financial assistance for uninsurable property damage, loss and other expenses. Funds are only available to the owner of the property at the time the flood damage occurred.
Albertans who experienced flood damage in flood fringes can use DRP funds to install flood mitigation measures. Those who undertake approved measures are eligible to receive DRP funds for any future flood that exceeds the 1-in-100 year flood event criteria.
Funds available through the DRP will cover the costs of returning essential property to the functional condition before the disaster happened. Learn how it applies to:
- homeowners and tenants
- not-for-profit organizations, institutions and condo associations
- agricultural producers
- landlords and small businesses (20 or less full-time employees)
The Small Business Rebuilding Program provides support to small businesses with 21 to 50 full time employees.
