Government Announces Funding for Flood-affected Areas
Provided through local councils, the support measures include:
£500 hardship payments for flooded households to support short-term needs.
100% council tax and business rates relief for at least three months for households and businesses significantly affected by the recent flooding.
£2,500 Business Recovery Grants for small and medium-sized businesses that have suffered severe, uninsurable losses.
£5,000 grants for flooded homes and businesses to help make them more resilient to future flooding.
These measures will apply to those affected in district or unitary authorities that have 25 or more flooded households as a result of the recent storms. This announcement only applies to England. (Flooding is a devolved matter for Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland.)
Local Government Secretary Robert Jenrick MP said:
'Storms Dennis and Ciara have severely impacted a large number of households and businesses – and I recognise how destabilising this can be.
'This extra support, including new funding, will help people in the worst-hit areas to recover and get back on their feet as soon as possible.'
Funding will be administered at a local level and those who believe they may qualify for support are being urged to contact their local authority for more information.
