Flood Assessment Fund

The objective of the Flood Assessment Fund (FAF) is to support community efforts to better understand the cause of flooding problems and to generate solutions that help to proactively plan for flooding and the resulting impacts that may occur. Examples of municipal activities/projects that support this objective and that may be considered include:

  • Generating information and maps that identify flood-prone areas and the extent of the potential impacts
  • Identify potential solutions that can mitigate flood impacts (ex. policy/planning, infrastructure, engagement)
  • Communicate results to individuals and stakeholders through educational materials and tools

Funding will be available for flood assessments through a single application process to the Flood Risk Infrastructure Investment Program.
