Storm Henk flooding financial support

Published: 02 March 2024


Residents whose homes were internally flooded and businesses that were affected by flooding caused by Storm Henk in January can now formally apply for financial support.

Eligibility for support also includes if the flooding meant they had to leave their home or close their business for a period of 48 hours or more.

The money comes from government funding schemes, which we are administering.

There are a range of possible options, ranging from grants to discounts on council tax or business rates. There is more information on our websites, where affected residents and businesses will also find a link to the relevant application forms:

Eligibility criteria apply to all of these support options, so anybody who believes they are entitled to funding should read the details carefully before applying.

The deadline for all applications is 1pm on Monday 18 March, and any flooding events also need to have been reported via the Oxfordshire Flooding Report form.

Anybody who wants to receive support must apply using the links above. If they do not do so before the deadline, the councils will not be able to provide them with financial support.

Anybody having difficulty applying or who requires support to do so, should contact or 01235 422600 (option 3) during office hours. Any queries about the business support should go to
