Support for flood-impacted farmers and growers in the Far North
The Ministry for Primary Industries has allocated the Far North District Council $20,000 in the form of a Mayoral Relief Fund to support the needs of businesses in the primary industry affected by the heavy rain and flooding event of 16-19th August 2022. A portion of the funding is to provide partial reimbursement for the costs of primary sector flood recovery measures.
To apply for reimbursement of expenses, the costs must have been incurred as a consequence of the flooding event and relate to primary sector businesses within the Far North District Council boundaries.
