The Cumbria Flood Recovery Fund 2015 was set up for those affected directly or indirectly by storm damage and flooding in December 2015.
Cumbria Community Foundation said that the Fund “has supported more than 3,000 households and helped communities rebuild after the floods. Over £9 million has been awarded in total, with more than £2.5 million being invested in resistance and resilience measures for both households and communities, to help minimise the extent of damage in the future.
Cumbria Community Foundation have advised that the deadline for applications to the Cumbria Flood Recovery Fund 2015 has been extended to 30 September 2017 and are encouraging households to apply to the Fund by the same date as all district councils who are providing the Property Level Resistance (PLR) grants have extended their deadline to 30 September.
Priorities for grant making are:
- Individuals and families suffering hardship as a result of the storms and floods
- Community relief and ‘community rebuilding’ projects
