The Bay of Plenty Primary Sector Flood Recovery Grant applications have now closed and all grants – of either $2000, $5000 or $10,000 - have been distributed.
Fully completed applications that met the eligibility criteria were assessed by a Technical Panel. The technical panel made recommendations to the final Assessment Panel, who made the final grant decisions.
All assistance for flood-affected people and businesses is listed on Whakatāne District Council’s website: www.whakatane.govt.nz/residents/whakatane-district-recovery-project/recovery-support-and-funding-assistance.
