Disaster Relief Assistance

Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing



If municipalities have experienced extraordinary damage to public infrastructure due to a natural disaster, they should contact their local Municipal Services Office of the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing to determine if the damages sustained are eligible for assistance.

The Ontario Disaster Relief Assistance Program (ODRAP) is an assistance program designed to help municipalities, individuals, farmers, small business, and non-profit organizations get back on their feet after a natural disaster. It is intended to cover the costs of returning essential items to pre-disaster condition for people who have suffered damage in designated disaster areas.
