Homeowners can now apply for a rebate on home improvements that help reduce flooding risks. The City of Charlottetown has launched a new rebate program that helps Charlottetown residents protect their homes against damage in the event of flooding. The Flood Protection Rebate Program provides Charlottetown homeowners with a one-time payment of up to $1000 for the installation of flood protection devices such as sump pumps, including their back-up battery systems, water detectors and alarms, and backwater valves. Rebate applications will be reviewed and approved on a first-come, first-served basis up to April 30 or until the program’s funding is exhausted. Info: charlottetown.ca/flood_rebate
