Further support announced for those significantly affected by Cyclone Gabrielle

Further support has been announced for farmers, growers and whenua Mฤori landowners significantly affected by Cyclone Gabrielle.

The Government is providing $25 million for recovery grants to help undertake urgent work, including fencing, and clearing silt to save fruit trees and vines. Applications open tomorrow.

Details are available here.

The funding is on top of an initial $4 million in targeted funding announced last week to help with urgent primary sector needs not being met by other organisations.

MPI is working closely with sector groups, including DairyNZ, Beef + Lamb New Zealand, Federated Farmers, Rural Support Trust National, Horticulture NZ and whenua Mฤori entities, to identify areas of greatest need.

Further information for sector and regional groups with funding requests is available here.

We’ve also teamed up with Federated Farmers to restart the national Feed Coordination Service to support farmers recovering from the cyclone.

Further details can be found here

Opinion : Are we doing rural mental health right?

In my line of work, I see people at their best and worst.

It can be challenging and gradual but being a part of the experience of fundamental change within someone suffering from mental health challenges, is the most rewarding experience I can think of.
