Nova Scotia government logo

Applications are now available for Nova Scotians with uninsurable damage from the heavy rain and windstorm on November 23. This disaster assistance program through the Department of Municipal Affairs and Housing helps municipalities, small businesses, not-for-profit groups and Nova Scotians whose losses aren't covered by insurance. The program will cover uninsurable losses of up to $200,000 per household. There is no deductible.

Applications are available online and will also be available at Access Nova Scotia centres, MLA offices, municipal offices and by calling 211. The application period will be open for about three months.
