Flood grants available

MESSAGE FOR ANY HOUSEHOLD EFFECTED BY FLOODING

Property owners in Herefordshire affected by flooding in February 2020 could be eligible for further financial help to protect their homes and businesses, thanks to new Government funding. Property Flood Resilience grant funding is available to households and businesses where the habitable living or business areas of their property have been damaged by floodwater entering the property, or where drying out and/or repairs to the fabric of the building have been necessary. The grants of up to £5,000 (including VAT) are intended to help property owners put measures in place to make their home or business more resilient to floods and to reduce damage should they be flooded again. The grant scheme will be managed by Herefordshire Council on behalf of Defra. Grant applications are due to be invited very shortly.
