Equine Emergency Disaster Fund Applications Now Open


The Alberta Equestrian Federation is now accepting applications from those seeking expense relief through the Equine Emergency Disaster Fund.

The fund was established to help provide support for expenses directly related to a significant disaster such as flood, wildfire, or pandemic, or where a local, provincial, or federal governing body may have declared a state of emergency and/or evacuation. Expenses considered for relief funding include items such as temporary boarding fees, hay, water, and medical expenses directly related to the disaster.

The application intake period for fall 2023 fund disbursement opens August 15 and closes September 15. Any submissions received after the closing date will not be considered for this intake. Disbursement of funds will be at the discretion of the Equine Emergency Disaster Fund task force committee.

Only one application will be accepted per premise or location of equine(s) per intake period. Applications must be accurate and complete, and include receipts, a letter of request, and appropriate signatures.

While we strive to fulfill as many requests as possible, due to limited funds available, the Equine Emergency Disaster Fund initiative may not be able to fully support all requests.
