Nonprofit/Voluntary Sector Special Flood Recovery Program
The following information is being provided to your provincial sport organization and can be distributed to your southern Alberta member organizations accordingly.
Special funding is being provided to assist the nonprofit/voluntary sector with flood recovery initiatives. $1 million is available in 2013-14 and $3 million in 2014-15.
The funding will be evenly split between the Community Facility Enhancement Program (CFEP) and the Community Initiatives Program (CIP) and will be delivered using existing CIP and CFEP guidelines, application forms and accountability requirements. CIP applications will be accepted for both the Project-Based and the Operating streams.
This special funding is intended to address costs associated with flood impacts not covered by insurance or the Disaster Recovery Program. Costs may be associated with damage to infrastructure, relocation expenses, an increase in operational costs or an increase in demand for programs and services from clientele who experienced significant loss or trauma as a result of the floods.
This special funding is available to
nonprofit/voluntary sector organizations impacted by the 2013 floods.
Eligibility of organizations will also be determined using existing CFEP and
The Special Flood Recovery Program is governed by the terms outlined in the Community Development Grant Regulation.
