Alberta flood victims to get some money

Two new provincial disaster recovery programs totaling $203.5-million will help citizens and municipalities in southern Alberta recover from recent flooding and severe weather.

“These storms had a devastating impact on residents, businesses and municipalities and this funding will help them rebuild their homes, businesses and communities,” said Premier Ed Stelmach. “Evaluators will work as quickly as possible to get recovery money into residents’ hands.”

The $200-million 2010 Southern Alberta Disaster Recovery Program will provide assistance to Albertans for severe overland flooding that followed a series of intense rainstorms from June 15-21.
In addition, the $3.5-million 2010 Spring South Eastern Alberta Disaster Recovery Program will provide assistance for Albertans who experienced overland flooding due to extreme amounts of snow and rain from April 13-May 31.
“This funding will also help municipalities which incurred significant emergency operation costs as a result of the storms,” said Hector Goudreau, Minister of Municipal Affairs. “I would also like to commend our province’s southern municipalities on their quick response to this emergency, which went a long way towards protecting their residents.”
The Disaster Recovery Program is a provincewide program that assists municipalities, residents and small businesses to recover uninsurable losses from severe weather events.
