Disaster Financial Assistance

What is Disaster Financial Assistance?

Disaster Financial Assistance provides financial support to assist individuals, small businesses and community governments in recovering from a disaster and restoring damaged property to its pre-disaster condition.

Disaster Financial Assistance may be available when:

  • An event is an emergency:
  • Damage was so widespread that a significant number of people or properties are affected;
  • The health, safety, and welfare of the affected residents are at risk;
  • Emergency operations are conducted;
  • A community, small businesses and community residents make serious efforts to protect property and minimize risk; and
  • The Government of the Northwest Territories applies the Disaster Assistance Policy.

How can I apply for Assistance?
