Recovery for Communities

The Community Impact Assessment is critical to determining if a Disaster Financial Assistance program will be established and therefore should be should be prepared accurately and as soon as possible. The Community Impact Assessment page provides more information and a Community Impact Assessment form which can be downloaded or completed on-line.

Disaster Financial Assistance

DFA is intended to restore eligible infrastructure to a functional state. DFA is not available for COVID-19 as it is a pandemic health emergency, not a natural disaster.

The Disaster Financial Assistance page for Communities provides more information.
