Freight subsidies may be made available for moving materials such as:

Freight subsidies under an IDSP declaration

You may be eligible for an IDSP declaration if your property is not in an area activated for DRFA assistance but has suffered significant damage from a natural disaster.

Once you have a declaration you can apply for freight subsidies.

For more information and to apply for an IDSP declaration, see the disaster assistance forms and guidelines.
