Flood Relief Support Package Available To Kirklees Businesses

Wednesday, 25 March 2020

If your home, business or charity has been flooded due to an adverse weather event, you may be eligible for grant support.

Grants of £750 are available for households and £3,000 for businesses/registered charities to help cover clean-up and other recovery costs, including:

clean up equipment - generators, dehumidifiers, lighting, brushes, power sprayers
building and stock security
costs associated with getting IT and electricity up and running
essential fixtures and fittings
temporary accommodation costs
specialist advice.
We cannot provide support for any repair or other building works or replacement of stock that property/flood insurance should cover. We are unable to provide grants for second homes or empty homes.

Applying for support
Email floodmanagement@kirklees.gov.uk with the location of your property. The flood risk team will advise whether you are likely to be eligible.

You will then need to complete an application form:

We have developed our financial support scheme in accordance with the Government's Flood Recovery Framework 

Property Resilience Flood Grant
A property resilience flood grant that we will operate on behalf of the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs will be available shortly. This provides support of up to £5,000 to households, businesses and charities to make improvements to their properties to make them more flood resilient.
