The Napier City Mayoral Relief Flood Response Fund is open and available to help people affected by recent flooding in the city.
Last week, the fund was boosted by a $100,000 contribution from the New Zealand Government.
Napier Mayor Kirsten Wise said the fund was set up to support people to buy essential items for daily life that are not covered by insurance and other agencies, such as food, clothing and other personal items.
“We are seeing many local people who have suffered hardship or been disadvantaged as a result of the flooding,” Ms Wise said.
“Having this fund available will certainly make life easier for them. If a local resident or ratepayer has been impacted by the floods, and can’t get support anywhere else, they can apply.”
