Business Flood Recovery Grant enquiry
This grant relates to small and medium sized businesses which:
- Were directly impacted by the flooding in February 2020 – for instance there was flood damage to the property, equipment, and/or stock; or;
- Were indirectly impacted by the flooding in February 2020 – for instance the business has had no/highly restricted access to premises, equipment and/or stock as a result of flooding, restricted access for customers, suppliers and/or staff; and directly suffered a loss of trade as a result.
Only one claim is allowed per business. Procedures are in place to prevent fraudulent claims being made.
The grant of up to £2,500 is available subject to evidence of the value of the impact which is not covered by insurance. If your application is successful, the council will pay the maximum available to each business.
