The floods in July 2021 caused €23 million worth of damage in total.

In her reply to a parliamentary question by MP Carole Hartmann from the Democratic Party (DP), Minister for Home Affairs Taina Bofferding states that 12 of these applications have been processed so far.

The total amount to be paid to the municipal sector will depend on the non-eligible costs.

In order to be eligible, the requested damages must concern properties of the affected municipalities or municipal syndicates that are not covered by insurance or other state entities.
