Household Flood Resilience Grant Scheme

Household Flood Resilience Grant Scheme

50m-Flood-FundThe Prime Minister announced on 9th December 2015 a scheme to provide grants of up to £5,000 to homeowners that had been flooded over the incident period 3- 11th December 2015 to help fund additional flood resilience or resistance measures for homes. This funding is available for works associated with flood protection of properties affected by the flooding.

Households that have been flooded will wish to consider whether they might be eligible for a flood resilience grant. If they think they may be eligible, they should contact their District Council to find out what next steps they need to take.

Grants are intended only to fund measures which improve the property’s resilience or resistance to flooding, over and above repairs that would normally be covered by insurance. Grant application forms should be submitted and approved in advance of committing expenditure. If applications are retrospective there is a risk to the homeowner that costs may not be eligible.

Billion-People-Facing-Flooding-by-2060Some of the District Councils involved in the grant include:

  • Allerdale Borough Council
  • Barrow Borough Council
  • Carlisle City Council
  • Copeland Borough Council
  • Eden District Council
  • South Lakeland District Council
  • Calderdale Council

Flood Guard can help you in your application for a Flood Resilience Grant by conducting a Flood Risk Survey and providing a quotation for the installation of flood protection measures. We can also carry out the work once your grant has been approved by supplying and installing your flood defences. To check your eligibility for a Flood Grant please enter your postcode above.
