Flood Resilience Community Pathfinder

Defra has been working with a range of stakeholders to develop a grant scheme to support innovative community-led demonstration projects.

The scheme is designed to enable and stimulate local communities at significant risk of flooding, from whatever source, to develop local solutions that:

  • enhance flood risk management and preparedness in ways which quantifiably improve the community's overall resilience
  • demonstrably improve the community's financial resilience in relation to flooding
  • deliver sustained improvements which have the potential to be applied in other areas.

Up to £5 million will be available in the period up to March 2015 to fund up to 20 projects.
