Province Offers Disaster Recovery Money For Flooding
EDMONTON: The provincial government has set-up a disaster recovery assistance program to help pay for uninsurable losses from flooding this summer in five regions.
Up to $34.2 million will be available to homeowners, small businesses, agricultural producers and municipalities. Of that amount, $12.5 Million has been set aside for Southern Alberta, to cover uninsurable flood damage that happened between June 5th and 8th in Fort Macleod, Taber, the M-D's of Crowsnest Pass and Willow Creek and the Counties of Cardston, Lethbridge and Warner.
Home and business owners should first contact their insurance companies for a letter that outlines their uninsurable damage and photos should be taken of the damage.
