Flood resilience and repair grant

Business owners and homeowners whose property suffered flood damage as a result of the winter storms of December 2015 and January 2016, are eligible to grants of up to £5,000, which are available to help fund additional flood resistant measures for your property. The grant is available towards the cost of flood mitigation measures to protect your property against future flooding.

The deadline to apply for this grant is 31 March 2017.

Any invoices relating to these grants must be received by North Yorkshire County Council, in order for payment to be made, by 1 April 2017.

Follow the step-by-step guide below to submit a grant application.

We recommend that, where possible, you make your application before carrying out any works. However, we want to help you to return to normality as quickly as possible and will accept compliant retrospective applications where work has already been completed.
