Province releases details of disaster financial assistance program

The New Brunswick government has released details about the disaster financial assistance program announced last month for people affected by the massive ice storm and the long-lasting power outages.

Residents can file claims for a variety of items, including gas used to operate a generator, uninsured losses or home damage, and the cleaning up of debris that posed a hazard, the government said in a statement.

Applications are available online and at Service New Brunswick offices. People can also apply by calling 1-888-298-8555.

Each situation will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.
