Hurricane Fiona Recovery Fund

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 Fund is coordinated by the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA), which is working with other federal departments and agencies to address recovery needs.
