Flood-hit farmers set to receive financial support

PUBLISHED ON: 10/01/2024

Farmers impacted by recent flooding may be eligible for up to £25,000 in government funding for damage to their land.

The funding has been made available through the Farming Recovery Fund for farm businesses in England that have suffered uninsurable damage due to flooding.

Financial support can be used towards repair and reinstatement costs on farm.

Storm Henk created substantial flooding in many regions across the UK, with persistent, heavy rain in early January causing widespread flood damage to land and properties.

The Flood Recovery Framework will be providing financial support for damage to properties from flooding.

Up to £500 will be made available for eligible households to cover immediate costs.

Eligible property owners, who have been affected by flooding, will be able to apply for up to £5,000 to make improvements to reduce the risk of future flooding through the Property Flood Resilience Repair Grant Scheme. 

One-hundred per cent relief for council tax and business rates will also be available for at least three months for eligible households and businesses that have been significantly impacted by flooding.

Finally, grants of up to £2,500 are being made available for affected businesses to help them return to normal operations.
