A recent update from the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment. The Tánaiste opens Emergency Humanitarian Support Scheme for Wexford Small Businesses unable to secure flood insurance and affected by Flooding over Christmas.
This financial support is targeted at small businesses (up to 20 employees), sports clubs and community and voluntary organisations and will have two stages:
- The first stage will commence immediately and will provide a contribution of up to €5,000, depending on the scale of damage incurred. It is anticipated that this will meet the needs for the majority of those affected. The intention is to process payments as fast as possible.
- In the event, that the premises have incurred significant damages above €5,000, businesses can apply for additional financial support, following an assessment by the Irish Red Cross. The total level of support available for both stages combined is capped at €20,000.
Applications forms for support available here -> Humanitarian Flood Support Scheme | Irish Red Cross .
We will be working hard to help businesses get back up and running. Please contact The Chamber directly on 053 9122226 should you require further support.
