£6.5m flooding support for Welsh communities

Posted on: Monday 15 February 2021

Welsh Government Ministers have announced £6.5 million to support local authorities and people affected by flooding during the Alert Level 4 lockdown.

The funding will allow local authorities to claim for the costs of responding to flooding including support to residents to address the immediate cost of water damage and replacing necessary belongings.

Welsh Government has already announced it will support households who have suffered flooding in their homes or were evacuated with payments of £500 and £1,000, similar to the support provided during storms Ciara and Dennis last year.
