Research Supporting Flood Recovery in the Sumas Prairie - Abbotsford Disaster Relief Fund

While the immediate danger of flood waters has receded the impacts on land, infrastructure, businesses, and people are still being felt. We are calling for research proposals that will address these impacts and provide pathways that lead to recovery. Individual projects can be funded for up to $25,000, but they must demonstrate outcomes that provide significant impact for flood affected persons in the Sumas Prairie region.
