Mitigation and Preparedness Program

In order to assist municipalities to mitigate against future disasters, when Manitoba establishes a Disaster Financial Assistance (DFA) program that is eligible for cost-sharing with Canada under the Disaster Financial Assistance Arrangements, municipalities can either:
  • Pay the Provincial/Municipal DFA deductible, or
  • Opt in to the Mitigation and Preparedness Program (MPP)
Under the MPP, municipalities will receive 100% of eligible DFA costs back from Manitoba, and are required to invest the amount that would have been the deductible into an approved disaster mitigation and preparedness project.
