Alberta government commits up to $34M to help flood recovery

EDMONTON - The Alberta government is committing up to $34.2 million to help pay for uninsurable losses from flooding this summer.

The cash is available to homeowners, small businesses, agricultural producers and municipalities.

The province says the money is being divided between five regions that include southern, northern, northwestern and central Alberta, as well as the city of Calgary.

Residents and business owners should first contact their insurance companies for a letter that outlines their uninsurable damage.

Photographs should also be taken.

Dates and locations of registration centres will be posted at www.aema.alberta.ca

An additional $450,000 will be available to Red Deer County, the County of Vermilion River and the Municipal District of Wainwright to help cover cleanup and emergency operations costs following windstorms in July.
