£1,500 grants for homes and businesses hit by floods


Every home, business or charity in Scotland directly affected by flood water can get a grant of GBP1,500, Nicola Sturgeon has announced.

The very first minister summarized the details of new financing for those hit by recent severe weather during a trip to Inverurie in Aberdeenshire.

She said more than GBP12m would be made open to help regions struck by storms and flooding.

Companies whose trade was affected also can submit an application for an additional GBP3,000.

It followed Storm Frank by the end of last month which found floods in other areas of the united states, including the Borders along with Tayside.

It’s estimated the recent thunderstorms could have cost the Scottish economy GBP700m so far.
