HIGH RIVER, Alta. — The Alberta government is providing an extra $20 million to fast-track the remaining claims from the province’s 2013 floods.

There are still 2,000 applicants with open files under Alberta’s Disaster Recovery Program.

Alberta Premier Jim Prentice says the government is adding an additional 15 temporary caseworkers to assist with file management.

In addition, he says those seeking to complete repairs on their homes will be able to receive a cash advance of 90 per cent of funding they are eligible to receive.

Previously, those looking for cash up front were only eligible for 50 per cent.

Once repairs have been completed, applicants can submit receipts to receive the final 10 per cent in funding.
