Hurricane Fiona Supplemental Relief Program- Application deadline (1st round): March 15, 2024

Wednesday, February 28, 2024


We are pleased to launch the Hurricane Fiona Supplemental Relief Program to provide financial assistance for Nova Scotia farms in those areas of the province impacted by Hurricane Fiona who were not eligible for funding under previous programs. This funding is being provided by Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency with support from the Nova Scotia Department of Agriculture.


Two key eligibility criteria are:

  • The damaged property must be located within the areas impacted by Hurricane Fiona: Hants, Colchester, Cumberland, Antigonish, Pictou, Halifax, and Guysborough counties. Businesses near but outside these boundaries may be eligible if they can demonstrate that the losses were the result of Hurricane Fiona.
  • The business must either have a gross annual business income of under $10,000 or over $2,000,000, or if between $10,000 and $2,000,000, have more than 20 full-time equivalent employees or have an ownership structure where no single entity owns more than 50 percent of the business


The program will fund up to 75 percent of eligible expenses not already covered by funding programs or insurance in the following categories:  infrastructure repair or replacement; greenhouse replacement; generator purchases and operation; debris removal; product lost in storage that is not insurable; and livestock, feed, and fencing.


No applicant will receive more than $1,000,000 in funding and the program will only cover replacement or repair to pre-Fiona conditions. For guidelines and application information visit  


The first round of applications must be received by MARCH 15th, 2024.  Funding will be subject to available resources. We encourage you to submit your application early.
