A grant of up to £2,500 per business has been made available by the Leeds City Region Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) for flood incurred damage costs that are not covered by business insurance policies.
Council officers are going door-to-door, visiting businesses who have been affected by the recent flooding to provide an update on the current situation in York and answer any potential queries.
As part of the engagement, businesses are being notified of the additional funding to support the clean-up and help alleviate costs incurred by flood water.
The business recovery fund is open for application for flood affected businesses and eligibility will be determined by evidence provided. Funding is not guaranteed for flood damaged businesses.
Businesses and residents are also invited to attend flood drop-in sessions to discuss support before, during and after a flood in the near future:
