Nottinghamshire County Council has announced a hardship fund
The fund has been made available to help residents and businesses affected by the recent flooding in the county.
A number of communities were affected after almost a month’s worth of rain fell across Nottinghamshire in just two days, closing many roads and causing widespread disruption.
The County Council has set up the Nottinghamshire Floods Hardship Fund for Residents and the Nottinghamshire Floods Business Hardship Fund.
Residents who were evacuated or whose homes flooded will be eligible to apply for a one-off payment of £120.
Small or micro businesses with up to 49 employees, whose premises were flooded will be eligible to apply for an emergency payment of £300 to help them cope with immediate, short-term loss of income.
