Tairāwhiti Mayoral Relief Fund

Application for assistance

The Tairāwhiti Mayoral Relief Fund is open for applications for assistance if you were affected by Cyclone Gabrielle and Cyclone Hale weather events..

Support that can be provided

As the financial amount available is limited, priority for support will be given to:

  • Provision of essentials for daily life, transport needs and household contents.
  • Rebuild/recovery costs of building damaged by water or storm damage.
  • Essential items not covered by insurance or other funds.

The process for funding assistance

The fund is only available to those affected by the severe weather in January and February this year.

There are a number of agencies with funding available to assist those affected and we ask that you investigate all other available sources before applying to this fund.

We may refer your application to another agency where it better meets their funding criteria in the first instance.

Applications will be considered by an advisory group, who will then make a recommendation to the Mayor for approval and allocation.
