Grants are available in Lincolnshire from the government’s Flood Recovery Framework to support communities following severe flooding.
If you suffered internal flood damage to your home or business during Storm Babet, you may be able to apply for up to £5,000 to help make the property more resilient to future flooding
Properties must have been seriously damaged internally by flood waters between the dates of 19 and 25 October, and subsequently required drying out or repairs to the fabric of the building.
Eligible properties are:
- Residential properties, including static caravans if they are the property owner’s primary residence
- Business properties where internal areas which are critical to the day-to-day operations of the business were affected
- Properties owned by local authorities who act as the landlord
- Holiday lets that are operated as a business, where non-domestic rates are paid
- Bed and Breakfast properties where the owner lives on site as their primary residence and pays domestic or non-domestic rates or both
- Houses of Multiple Occupancy (HMOs) or blocks of flats, which will be considered as one property
Non-eligible properties include:
- Garages, outhouses or storage areas
- Second homes
- Empty homes
- Basements or cellars not used as part of the habitable or business area of the property
- Holiday cottages which are not part of a commercial enterprise and are not the principal residence of the owner
- Properties that received property flood resilience grants in 2013/14, 2015/16, November 2019 and February 2020
- Properties that received Grant in Aid funding under a Regional and Flood Coastal Change Committee property level scheme
The scheme expires in early 2025. Please register as soon as you are able to, to avoid any delay to your claim.
