Flood affected businesses offered up to £2,500 by Nottinghamshire County Council to recover losses
Flood hit businesses could receive a one-off government grant to help their recovery efforts.
Nottinghamshire County Council has announced details of a government scheme to help businesses impacted by the recent flooding.
The Business Recovery Grant is part of a range of financial support schemes being made available.
Council leader Kay Cutts said: “I appreciate how heart-breaking it must be for small businesses who saw their livelihoods hit so hard during the recent flooding, which is especially hard in the run-up to Christmas.
“The council has taken steps to introduce the government’s Business Recovery Grant to specifically support those who need help so they can take immediate steps to begin trading again.”
The Business Recovery Grant is in addition to a hardship grant already offered.
Small and medium-sized businesses can check they qualify and apply for the Business Recovery Grant by completing the form on the council website at Nottinghamshire.gov.uk/businessrecoverygrant
Qualifying businesses are typically those whose premises were flooded or who were evacuated from their businesses during the recent flooding.
These grants are in addition to a range of other support options available to businesses such as the Council Tax Support Scheme and The Business Rate Relief Scheme, currently being offered through district councils.
