Flood-hit Norwich residents have been urged to get their applications in for emergency funding before a grant scheme comes to a close this week.
Householders affected by flash flooding earlier this year were invited to apply for a £10,000 pot of money, which came from the EDP Norfolk and Lowestoft Flood Appeal.
The fund, which is managed by Norfolk Community Foundation, has been awarded to Norwich City Council and local residents have until September 30 to submit their applications.
The flood appeal, which was launched at the end of last year to help the hundreds of people affected by a devastating tidal surge on the Norfolk and Suffolk coast, has been extended to help residents in Norwich who were hit by a series of flash floods during the summer months.
A number of properties in Beatrice Road and Ella Road suffered flood damage as well as Lionwood Infant and Nursery School.

Emergency grants of up to £500 will be considered for properties affected by internal flooding that fall within Norwich City Council's boundary. The money is being made available for costs not covered by insurance.
Successful applicants will be notified by the end of October.
