Calderdale Council has now removed deadlines for people to apply for their flood grants.
The Repair and Renew grant is already deadline-free.However, Calderdale Council points out that funds from the government are limited, and people wanting to make an application should register their interest as soon as possible. If more people come forward for the grants than funds are available, a case will be put to the government to extend the scheme.
So far the Council has made 1,566 payments to eligible householders totalling £783,000, and 762 payments to businesses totalling £1,831,685.
It’s estimated that the December floods affected approximately 2,720 households and 1,250 businesses, so there are still people who are likely to be eligible who haven’t yet applied for funding.
To find out if you’re eligible and to apply, please visit www.calderdale.gov.uk and search for ‘Flood funding’ for an application form, or call 01422 288001.
If you are a business or a community group and your premises have been affected complete the grant application form on the Calderdale Council website and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If your home was affected please email your completed application form to email@example.com.
