Information in relation to assistance available to persons/businesses affected by flooding.

Home Owners Affected by Flooding: If you have been flooded you may be able to get financial help from the Department of Social Protection’s Humanitarian Assistance Scheme. The means-tested scheme provides emergency financial assistance to households who are not able to meet costs for essential needs immediately following flooding. The scheme aims to provide financial support to people who have suffered damage to their home. It is designed to alleviate hardship rather than provide full compensation for damage. The contact number is (071) 9113765 or alternatively information and guidelines in relation to the scheme are available on the following link.
