Humanitarian Aid Scheme for those affected by recent flooding
In recognition of the devastation suffered by people due to the recent flooding, the Government has established a Humanitarian Assistance Scheme.
The scheme, which is means tested, is intended to provide emergency financial assistance to households who are not in a position to meet costs for essential needs in the period immediately following flooding. The aim of the scheme is to provide financial support to people who have suffered damages to their home and in doing so provide hardship alleviation, as opposed to full compensation.
