$2,725 basement flood subsidy
If you were one of the unlucky ones hit by the recent flood you're probably wondering about the costs of prevention. Halton Region offers a $2,725 basement flood prevention subsidy that could help.
The subsidy covers up to $1,800 towards the disconnection of weeping tiles and the purchase and installation of a sump pump system, $250 for disconnecting downspouts and $675 towards the purchase and installation of a backwater valve. Even if you didn't have a flood, you can still apply for the grant.
