Grants available for flooded businesses
We are working with Make It York to administer grants of up to £2500 to businesses flooded following the Christmas 2015 storms. The majority of eligible businesses have been sent an application form and guidance directly, but they are also available below. Once the form has been filled in, it should be returned to b[email protected]
Business unable to trade from their premises may also be eligible for Business Rate Relief of up to three months. Again, the form is below.
An additional grant of up to £5,000 is available towards the cost of flood mitigation measures to protect your property against future flooding. Further information about how to apply is available from North Yorkshire County Council under Flood resilience and repair grant.
Farmers who have been affected by the flooding can apply for between £500 and £20,000 of grant support, before the 1st April 2016.
Leeds City Region has also announced a £5m fund to help smalll and medium sized enterprises recover from the recent affects of flooding.
