Red Cross grant for quake-hit residents

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 13/12/2016

People forced out of their homes by last month's Kaikoura quake are set to get a $1000 grant.

Red Cross will give the damaged home grant to those whose homes were either red or yellow stickered, or had to evacuate their homes for seven days or longer after the 7.8-magnitude earthquake.

NZ Red Cross boss Tony Paine said it knew more than 570 homes were damaged and the grant would give those affected a helping hand.
