Province sets Nov. 30 deadline to apply for flood disaster recovery money
EDMONTON — Alberta has set a deadline for people who were affected by the devastating June floods to apply for disaster recovery money.
The province estimates more than 100,000 people in 30 communities were affected by the floods, including more than 40,000 people who were forced from their homes.
More than 2,000 people are still out of their homes, including almost 1,300 living in temporary neighbourhoods in High River and Siksika.
People have until Nov. 30 to file their initial claim for uninsurable property damage and other expenses for their primary home, small business or farm.
The Municipal Affairs Department says once people file their application they will have more time to submit their paperwork to complete the process.
People can call 310-4455 to apply or download the form online at http://alberta.ca/2013DisasterRecoveryPrograms.cfm.
