Government Announces Support for Flood-Hit Farmers

Flooding at Woodhouse Washlands Nature Reserve, South YorkshireFlood-hit farmers in northern England will be able to apply for up to £25,000 in government grants to help them get back on their feet.

The government have announced that they will extend the Farming Recovery Fund to support farmers badly affected by the recent flooding across Yorkshire and the Midlands.

Through this scheme, farmers and land managers who have suffered uninsurable damage to their property will be able to apply for grants of between £500 and £25,000 to cover repair costs, whether that’s clearing debris or recovering damaged land.

This comes as Environment Agency teams continue to work around the clock in incident rooms and on the ground to reduce flood risk and keep communities safe.
