Flood grant scheme

If you were affected by the floods in November 2019 or February 2020, either at your home or your business, there is a new grant scheme that could help you.

Property Flood Resilience Grant

To be eligible, properties and business must have been severely damaged by flooding on the following dates:

  • between 7 and 18 November 2019 in the Derbyshire Dales, Amber Valley, Chesterfield or South Derbyshire districts
  • between 8 and 9 February 2020 (Storm Ciara) and between 15 and 16 February 2020 (Storm Dennis) in the Erewash district

It offers flood-hit homes and businesses up to £5,000 (including VAT) to make changes to properties to reduce the flood risk to them in the future and make them more resilient. The money is to fund the additional cost, over the costs of a standard property repair, using materials which are more resistant and resilient to damage from flooding. For example, it might offer help to move electrical sockets from the bottom of the wall to higher up the wall, or provide flood doors to reduce the risk of water entering the property.
