DFA Funding

the DFA program helps Manitobans recover by providing financial assistance for uninsurable losses to basic and essential property. Assistance is generally provided for the recovery needs of local authorities (including municipalities), occupied private primary residential propertiesfarmssmall businesses and not-for-profit organizations.

DFA is not a substitute for private insurance and does not compensate applicants for lost revenue, inconvenience, non-essential damages, injuries or lost wages.

Not all disaster events will result in a DFA program being established. DFA programs may be established when three criteria are met:

  • Damages from the event are widespread and affect a large area or number of residents;
  • Damages from the event are mostly uninsurable; and
  • Damages from the event represent a significant financial burden.
