Hurricane Fiona Recovery Fund

Rebuilding livelihoods and safeguarding the economy after Hurricane Fiona

Through the Hurricane Fiona Recovery Fund (HFRF), the federal government will provide up to $300 million over 2 years, starting in 2022, to support local communities and businesses affected by the storm and to help long-term recovery efforts.  

The HFRF is a support measure to fill gaps for those who may not qualify under their insurance or other existing federal and provincial support measures, like their respective province’s disaster financial assistance. 

The Fund is coordinated by the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA), which is working with other federal departments and agencies to address and determine local recovery needs, develop targeted initiatives to assist in recovery and rebuilding, and allocate funds accordingly to the departments and agencies that will deliver their portion of the HFRF.
