Disaster Financial Assistance - Flooding

Disaster Recovery Program - Flooding 2020

Based on the 2020 flooding, Sturgeon County applied to and was approved to access the Government of Alberta's Disaster Recovery Program (DPR). The program provides financial assistance to qualifying homeowners, residential tenants, agricultural operations, small businesses, and landlords for uninsurable loss and damage caused by emergencies and disasters. The goal of the DRP is help return essential property to its basic, pre-disaster functional condition.

Any resident, landowner, or businesses in Sturgeon County who has experienced uninsurable loss or damage from the 2020 flooding is eligible to apply.

How to apply for flood relief funding

  • Homeowners and residential tenants can fill out and submit an application through the Government of Alberta’s online portal. To complete an online application for homeowner and tenant assistance from the DRP, a MyAlberta Digital Identity (MADI) is required. MADI accounts can be created on the MyAlberta Digital ID website.
