Flood Recovery Support for Households and Businesses

The Government announced payments for communities affected by flooding because of Storm Henk. The support is being made available through a scheme called the Flood Recovery Framework.

If your property suffered flood damage between 2 January 2024 and 12 that is being administered by the local authority. The assistance includes:

  • Community Recovery Grant - £500 for immediate recovery costs.
  • Council Tax Discount – 100% Council Tax relief for at least three months.
  • Business Recovery Grant - £2,500 to help return to business as usual.
  • Business Rates Relief – 100% relief for at least three months.

 

Other funding

In addition, the property owner may also be eligible for a Property Resilience Grant of up to £5,000 to help properties become more resilient to future flooding, being administered by Leicestershire County Council. Further information will be provided by Leicestershire County Council when the scheme is launched.
