Pūtea Manaaki – COVID 19 Emergency Grant

An email will be going from the Kaiwhakahaere to whānau in regards to this grant early next week.

Hardship Grant information and application

This is the link to the Hardship Grant . I suggest whanau that are affected by Covid-19 apply for the Covid Grants when they are announced next week. However, when people are impacted by longer term hardship then please go to the hardship grant.
