Mayoral Relief Flood Response

The Mayoral Relief Fund is now closed.

The Napier City Mayoral Relief Flood Response Fund provides one-off financial support to the residents and ratepayers of Napier who have been affected by the Napier Flood. The hardship grants go some way towards helping to alleviate the emotional and financial stress experienced by individuals and families due to the Napier Flood.

Am I able to apply for the fund? 

  • You must, at the time of your application, be experiencing hardship (financial or emotional) as a result of the Napier Flood. 
  • If you are eligible to receive funding assistance from any other source for the same item/s you may not be eligible for this Fund unless that funding assistance has not substantially reduced the financial loss or hardship suffered.
  • Only one application per household will be considered. 
  • The fund does not apply to businesses affected by the Napier Flood. 

How long will the fund remain open?

Applications will be accepted until 16 December 2020, or until the Fund is fully allocated, whichever is earlier. On 11 December 2020, the Fund will be reviewed and may be extended. 

How will the decision be made? 

All eligible applications are assessed and forwarded to the Napier City Mayoral Relief Flood Response Fund Panel for decision as they are submitted. The Panel will consist of the Mayor (or her delegate), a councillor and a community representative.

What will be funded? 

  • Essential items/essentials of daily life (e.g. food, accommodation, utilities) 
  • Extra financial burden/costs and/or family and personal crisis due to the Napier Flood and displacement.
  • Priority will be given to essential items and costs not covered by insurance or other agencies/funds (such Work and Income and EQC).

The Mayoral Relief Fund is now closed as all funds have been spent. All applicants will be notified as soon as possible. 

The Fund is now closed for donations.
