Neighborhood Flood Assistance Program
The Redevelopment Authority of Bucks County today announced the opening of a flood relief assistance program to aid Bucks County residents affected by the severe weather and flash flooding on July 12, 2021. In attendance at the Bucks County Redevelopment Authority in Bristol Wednesday afternoon were Senator Tommy Tomlinson, Rep. Tina Davis, Rep. K.C. Tomlinson, Bristol Township Council President Craig Bowen, Bensalem Mayor Joe DiGirolamo, Bucks County Redevelopment Authority Representatives Board President Sean Schaefer and Executive Director Jeff Darwak. The Neighborhood Flood Assistance Program is funded by a $1.75 million grant secured by the lawmakers from the Department of the Community and Economic Development and will be administered by BCRDA. The program’s goal is to offer financial support to those who faced significant property loss or damage and were uninsured or underinsured. Assistance will not be given to landlords, businesses, or non-profit organizations.
The severe flash flood of July 12 most impacted the Lower Bucks County region, with 10 inches of rain falling within a short period of time, resulting in damage to homes and loss of property. Priority consideration will be given to residents of Bensalem, Bristol Borough and Bristol Township and to those who faced catastrophic damage. The maximum grant award is $5,000 and the minimum is $500. Applicants are encouraged to apply early. The program guidelines and applications are available on the Redevelopment Authority’s website at this link https://www.bcrda.com/neighborhood-flood-assistance-program-guidelines/
. Paper applications will be provided as necessary. The program is open to homeowners or tenants whose primary residence is located in Bucks County and was damaged by the flooding event of July 12, 2021. Applicants will need to provide proof of property damage and costs incurred not covered by insurance or other assistance programs. Specific information is available on the Redevelopment Authority’s website.
