Municipal Recovery Toolkit for Flood Affected Municipalities Now Available

In response to the flooding that occurred in June 2013, the Government of Alberta has developed the Municipal Recovery Toolkit to help municipalities in their rebuilding efforts. The information provided in the Toolkit focuses on intermediate and long term recovery phases of recovery.

The Toolkit provides detailed information about the development and implementation of Municipal Recovery Action Plans which provide strategic guidance through the coordination of municipal goals and priorities and targeting applicable resources that will provide the most value.  If a municipality is requesting funding from the Government of Alberta, a Recovery Action Plan is required to enable continued alignment of municipal efforts and provide clarity for long-term planning.  Some municipalities that were affected by the June 2013 floods are eligible for funding support increasing municipal staff capacity for the development of a Recovery Action Plan through the Southern Alberta Flood Response Program.

In addition to providing an in-depth template for developing a Municipal Recovery Action Plan, the Municipal Recovery Toolkit includes:

  • Information on completing a Disaster Recovery Program Application and a guide to requesting Municipal Affairs Grants
  • A listing of Government of Alberta programs available to assist in recovery funding
  • Additional non-profit organizations that may have funding available

The Municipal Recovery Toolkit builds on the Provincial Recovery Framework which was released in July 2013 to guide provincial flood recovery efforts.

The AAMDC will continue to be involved as a stakeholder in flood recovery and mitigation discussions and will continue to advise members on developments as they become available.
