Parts of Clayhall and Barkingside are at risk of flooding, the Environment Agency said.
To alleviate water problems in roads including Hurstleigh Gardens, The Glade and Ravensbourne Gardens, the local authority has been awarded a £700,000 grant.
A Redbridge Council spokeswoman said the funding was given after a risk consultation carried out in July and August 2017.
“The council will be looking at three proposals to reduce the risk of flooding in the Clayhall area which are not interdependent on each other,” she said.
“One in Hurstleigh Gardens open space, two in Ash Plantation at the rear of Repton Grove and the glade and three in Ravensbourne Gardens.”
The Environment Agency Grant scheme to alleviate flooding will be implemented in January 2019.
