Hope for High River has arrived
In recent news, High River, Alberta has had a devastating experience as home owners have been suffering with the flooding that occurred in 2013. Many people were forced out of their homes and into motels and campers causing strain on many families. Many were also allowed to go back to their homes once cleared of mold only to have to evacuate again after the mold came back due to in-proper remediation process in which the Government of Alberta initially processed funding for.
Our team at got mold? was live on location assisting many families with the remediation and assessment process that took place. We had many people very thankful for our services that the community needed fast and accurate assistance with.
- High River will get 15 new, full time workers to help manage and process DRP claims
- Compensation payments will be increasing from 50 per cent to 90 per cent
- Residents will now get money in advance for property repairs, whereas before they had to pay some money up front and submit their receipts
- All DRP files will be cleared by June 1
For more information on the Disaster Recovery Programs in Alberta available that provides financial assistance for uninsurable property damage, loss and other expenses and how it works.
In an effort to close out remaining 2013 DRP cases by summer of 2015, government will allocate an additional 15 temporary caseworkers to assist with file management and advance 90 per cent of eligible funding to the approximately 2,000 remaining applicants with open files.
“The addition of these resources will allow government to provide immediate support to remaining flood victims and assist them in putting this difficult experience behind them. I would like to thank flood victims for their patience and representatives of affected areas for ensuring government had the information needed to ensure the DRP can better respond to those who need it most.”
