The Defra Flood Resilience Community Pathfinders Scheme (2013-2015) was a £5 million, 2 year, grant scheme concluded on 31 March 2015. It was designed to help stimulate innovative approaches to community flood risk management and enable communities at risk of flooding to work with key partners to develop innovative local solutions that:
- Enhance flood risk management and awareness in ways which quantifiably improve the community’s overall resilience to flooding.
- Demonstrably improve the community’s financial resilience in relation to flooding.
- Deliver sustained improvements which have the potential to be applied in other areas.
From across England, 45 applications were received and projects submitted by 13 local authorities (referred to collectively as ‘pathfinder projects’) received funding.
