Flood Damage Reduction Program

The Flood Damage Reduction Program (FDRP) is a transition from the Emergency Flood Damage Reduction Program (EFDRP) that deals only with imminent flood risk. The FDRP provides cost share funding for implementing proactive flood damage prevention or reduction measures for urban municipalities (cities, towns and villages) and rural municipalities (hamlets) that face a risk of suffering recurrent flood damage in the future.

Risk of recurrent flood damage is defined as the historical existence of a flood hazard and demonstrated vulnerability to such flood events causing damages to the businesses and homes of citizens or municipal infrastructure. It also considers that there is a likelihood that the risk is ongoing.

Please note that the mitigation of flood risk associated with internal municipal storm water management/drainage issues are not covered under the program unless there is a significant external factor outside of the community’s control that is exacerbating storm water issues.
