Public Advisory: Deadline for Disaster Financial Assistance Funding Applications for West Coast Flooding

In relation to flooding on the west coast in January 2018, the Provincial Government is encouraging residents, businesses and communities who have not already submitted their Newfoundland and Labrador Disaster Financial Assistance Program applications, to do so by April 12, 2018.

As of April 6, 91 private sector claims have been received. If residents have not yet applied because they are waiting for a response from their insurance provider, they should still apply now. Documents from insurance providers can be submitted once they have been received.

To obtain a Newfoundland and Labrador Disaster Financial Assistance Program application, please visit: www.gov.nl.ca/fes/forms.
