SOUTHLAND MAYORAL RELIEF FUND
The Southland Mayoral Relief Fund has been boosted by a $100,000 contribution from the Government to help Southlanders impacted by the floods.
“It’s very encouraging to get additional Government money to support local people who have suffered hardship or been disadvantaged as a result of the flooding,” said Emergency Southland Controller Angus McKay.
“If a local resident, business or organisation has been impacted by the floods, and cannot get support anywhere else, they will be able to apply for one-off financial assistance from the fund.
Criteria for applications to the fund will be agreed between Southland Mayors over the next week or so. Information on how to apply will then be available on the www.cdsouthland.nz website.
Donations can be made to the fund at BNZ and online: Account No. 02-0924-0064987-006 : account name SDC – southland flood relief
