Help for Bay of Plenty farmers and growers

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 9/06/2017

Bay of Plenty farmers and growers affected by April's storms and floods can now apply for help from a $200,000 fund.

Primary Industries Minister Nathan Guy says they can use the grants for re-grassing, re-sowing and the clean-up of silt and debris.

"They can use it to cover expenses they have already incurred or to help cover those they have been putting off up to now," he said on Friday.

"This helping hand to deal with some of the extra costs associated with the repair of uninsurable infrastructure will make a difference to those who were worst hit."
