Calgarians who experienced flooding due to the severe weather between May 25 and 29 can register for the Government of Alberta Disaster Recovery Program on July 26 and 27.
The program assists residents, small businesses and institutions/not-for-profit organizations who are trying to recover from the non-insurable damages caused by overland flooding and groundwater seepage as a result of the severe weather. The assistance is provided through the Government of Alberta Disaster Recovery Program for Calgary and will be facilitated by the Calgary Emergency management Agency (CEMA). People in Calgary and the county of Rockyview are eligible for assistance if they suffered property damage from flooding during the severe weather in the city and surrounding area between May 25 and 29.
This particular disaster recovery program is a safety net for Albertans, providing financial assistance for those items essential for day-to-day living. This program also covers situations where insurance is not readily or reasonable available. Applications for funding can be completed, in person, on July 26 from 10 a.m., to 8 p.m., and Wednesday July 27 from 10 a.m., to 8 p.m., at the Centre Street Church located at 3900 2 St N.E.
