Community Flood Resilience Grant

Staffordshire County Council has secured funding for small flood alleviation schemes to be completed in the 2017/2018 financial year.

Applications for up to £5000 can be submitted per location and the funding should be used to undertake works, studies, or other projects that will reduce, mitigate, or educate about flood risk in the area.

Proposals could include (non-exhaustive):

  • Grab bags for communities at risk of flash flooding
  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for communities that have have already developed an incident plan (torches, appropriate clothing, etc.)
  • Small-scale telemetry to allow residents to monitor situations e.g. cameras or gauges on watercourses and trash screens which then link to or update websites, mobile phones, or alarm systems. 
  • Small hydraulic models or surveys which help to identify and quantify flood risk
  • Physical interventions such as temporary barriers and associated storage facilities for equipment
  • Communication materials such as leaflets, advertisements, or notices which inform people about the local flood risk and how to prepare for and respond to flood events

The grant is available to community groups, flood action groups, and town, borough, district, or parish councils within Staffordshire. 

Application forms must be submitted for review by 30th November 2017.

All applications will be evaluated and Staffordshire County Council reserves the right to refuse funding for low scoring schemes based on priority and flood risk.

Information packs and application forms are available by expressing your interest to flood.team@staffordshire.gov.uk.
