Grants mooted for St Albans flood victims

Flood victims could be eligible for up to £5,000 thanks to a new Government scheme which has been launched following the recent bout of severe weather.
Businesses and homeowners can apply to St Albans district council for a “repair and renew” grant if their home or premises was flooded between December 1, 2013, and March 31 this year.
The scheme is intended to provide funds for additional flood resilience or resistance measures but not for damage and items that should be claimed through insurance.
Businesses with premises affected by flooding may also be entitled to business rates relief, and those who can prove they were significantly hit by the floods, for example if they can prove loss of income as a result of road closures, may qualify for a business support grant.
In addition, funding for council tax discounts is also available for owners of flooded homes.
