Cyclone Gabrielle - Farmer and Grower Recovery Grants 2023

Cyclone Gabrielle - Farmer and Grower Recovery Grants 2023

Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) has $51 million to help farmers and growers, including whenua Mฤori owners, to recover from Cyclone Gabrielle.

This funding is intended to assist farmers and growers in getting back to productivity as quickly as possible.

The grants are for farmers and growers to undertake urgent work, including fencing, and clearing silt to save trees and vines. Work completed by volunteers is not eligible for funding.

The following recovery grants are available:

  • Grants for pastoral and arable farmers/growers of up to $10,000 to help initial recovery on-farm, such as repairs to water infrastructure for stock and fencing.
  • Grants for horticulture growers of $2000 per hectare up to a maximum of $40,000 to remove silt from trees and vines, support clean−up and other time-sensitive work to minimise future losses, such as preserving trees in orchards and vines for future production. The maximum total amount available across both recovery grants is $40,000.

To be eligible, your principal income must be from an eligible primary industry business, and more than 51% of the income from the affected property must be derived from an eligible primary industry business. For collectively owned Mฤori land, this consideration does not apply.

To apply for a recovery grant please complete this form with the required supplementary information and send a signed copy to Funding@mpi.govt.nz

Any funding approved by MPI will be subject to the terms and conditions set out in the last page of this form. Please read the terms and conditions carefully, before applying.
