What can I use the grant for?

You can use the PFR grant to protect your property by fitting flood protection products on your property. These include:

  • Automatic flood doors
  • De-watering pumps
  • Barriers – usually fitted on doors and windows to prevent flood water from entering your property
  • Air brick covers – placed over existing airbricks and vents to act as a seal to prevent floodwater from entering your property.


If you have been contacted regarding the PFR grant as you are within a CDA please email to apply. The application form is currently being updated to allow for all of those within a CDA to apply.
