Emergency Relief Assistance for a Catastrophic Event
Woodlands County offers a one-time $1,000 emergency relief payment for residents that experience a catastrophic event. A catastrophic event is considered an event that typically affects one property and includes house fire, landslide or such disaster that causes total loss or causes uninhabitable conditions to the residence and/or total loss of a person’s personal belongings. Ineligible catastrophic events, include overland flooding, weather events, and wildfires, in which provincial or federal financial assistance maybe provided for uninsurable loss and damage caused by such disasters.
To be eligible for assistance, the applicant must have current taxes paid and be in good standing with the municipality and not received other financial assistance from the County (ie: vouchers for accommodation or food, as a result of evacuation).
One application per primary resident, whether that is the property owner or lessee, per lifetime. Applications must be submitted within 72 hours of the catastrophic event.
