FLOODING DISASTER RECOVERY PROGRAM APPLICATION
The Province of Alberta has a Disaster Recovery Program (DRP) to assist communities who experience damage from natural disasters. The Village of Acme has submitted an application through the DRP for the overland flooding that the Village experienced on May 31, 2020.
The application process takes time and the Village of Acme is waiting for approval at this time. If the Village of Acme is approved, affected residences and businesses may apply under the Village of Acme for assistance. More information on this application process will be released as it becomes available.
Information that may be required from residences and businesses if the Village’s application is approved include:
Time spent on clean up from the overland flooding
Receipts for all expenses related to the overland flooding
Cost of damages/quotes from insurance from the overland flooding
As part of the Village of Acme’s application, we will need to know the number of homes and businesses affected with flooding, the number of residents affected, the number of tenants affected, and the approximate cost of the damages. If you have not informed the Village Office of the damage which you experienced in your home or business from the overland flooding, we ask that you call the office at 403-546-3783 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know. Please let us know even if you only had a small amount of water come into your home or business.

INFORMATION REGARDING COVID-19 and ALBERTA'S RELAUNCH
NON MEDICAL MASKS
Albertans can now access 20 million free, non-medical face masks to help prevent the spread of COVID-19
People can visit one of almost 600 A&W, McDonald’s Canada, or Tim Hortons drive-thrus in the province to receive four non-medical masks. Masks are free and no purchase is necessary.
Albertans are encouraged to pick up masks for family members and friends, especially those who may not be able to get to a drive-thru, to reduce traffic. Masks are being distributed on the honour system, and people are asked to respect the limit of one package of four masks per Albertan to ensure everyone who wants masks can get them.
Masks have also been provided to many municipalities, First Nations communities, Metis Settlements, and local agencies. This includes rural and remote communities that do not have access to a partner restaurant drive-thru and are developing their own distribution plans.
