The Peace River Regional District has received $150,000 from the province for flood mapping of the Chetwynd, Moberly Lake and Tomslake-Pouce Coupe areas.
The province announced the funding July 9 from the Community Emergency Preparedness Fund to help communities prepare for, and respond to, disasters.
"I have seen first-hand the loss and devastation catastrophic flooding can have on people, families and entire communities," said public safety minister Mike Farnworth.
"In order to reduce the effect of flooding on people and their livelihoods, we are investing now to support flood risk assessments, mitigation and planning work. These projects help create resiliency by improving the capacity of local government and First Nations to respond to and recover from severe flooding events."
