Support could include:

  • A hardship payment of up to £500 to help with immediate recovery.This grant is for residential properties and will be paid directly to the household. To be eligible for this support, the living area of a property must be flooded, making it uninhabitable for any period of time.
  • Council tax and business rates relief.For significantly affected homes and businesses, 100% council tax and business rate relief may be applied for a period of three months.
  • Up to £2,500 Business Flood Recovery Grantfor small/medium sized business affected, as a grant paid direct to the business. Businesses are eligible where they have suffered a direct loss of trade as a result of the flooding that cannot be recovered from insurance.
