The Ontario government is sending relief to residents in Bolton following the recent flooding.
Downtown Bolton experienced flooding so severe, many people were forced from their homes and caused significant damage to their property.
The provincial government announced today funding support is available to those affected through the Disaster Recovery Assistance for Ontarians program (DRAO).
According to the Province, the disaster assistance program applies to a primary residence and its basic contents, or to a small business, farm or not-for-profit organization.
It provides assistance for emergency expenses and the costs to repair or replace essential property following a natural disaster that are not covered by insurance.
You can access the funding after speaking with your private insurance provider.
Residents can then head to ontario.ca/DisasterAssistance or call 1-844-780-8925 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
