August 29, 2012 – The Disaster Relief Committee is working diligently under the Ontario Disaster Relief Assistance Program guidelines (ODRAP) to meet the community needs of those affected by the May 28, 2012 flood.

The Application for Assistance for Losses and Damages through the Ontario Disaster Relief Program (Blue Form) is due no later than October 31, 2012.
