It’s the final week for Tararua on Track fund applications.

02 Oct 2023

Cyclone impacted Tararua farmers and growers who have not yet made an application to the $1 million fund for uninsured urgent maintenance and resilience works on farms, are reminded to get online and submit applications before the closing date of this Friday, 6th October.

Farmers and growers are strongly encouraged to include as much detail as possible, including proof of purchase, quotes or even a work plan. This ensures the evaluation team has all the relevant information needed to consider funding.

The last three weeks have seen a steady stream of applications coming through from those in the Tararua district who have completed, and who are yet to complete uninsured, critical repairs on their land and farms.

Works may include repairs to farm tracks which provide critical access, resilience works on private land where there are risks to public access being compromised, reinstatement of critical water supply infrastructure, and the reinstatement of boundary fencing and flood gate structures.

Farmers are reminded that the Tararua on Track funding may be used in two ways; for reimbursement of works already completed, or help to pay for planned works, however these works must be able to be completed by 31 December 2023.
