Residents and ratepayers of the Hawke’s Bay region who have been affected by Cyclone Gabrielle can now apply for assistance from the Hawke’s Bay Disaster Relief Fund.

The fund, organised by the Hawke’s Bay mayors and chair, offers one-off hardship grants to alleviate hardship due to such things as flooding, prolonged power outages and landslips. For the rural community, applications can be extended to provide some assistance for emergency fencing requirements for livestock and disposal of dead stock.

Support is available up to a maximum of $1,000 per household or $2,000 for organisations, marae and community groups.

Hawke’s Bay Disaster Relief Fund chair Hinewai Ormsby, who is also the chair of the Hawke’s Bay Regional Council, says the fund will help the Hawke’s Bay community get essential and immediate access to funds to assist with recovering from the impacts of the cyclone.
