Cyclone Gabrielle farmer and grower recovery grants 2023

The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) has $25 million to help farmers and growers and whenua Māori to recover from Cyclone Gabrielle. This initial funding is intended to assist farmers and growers in getting back to productivity as quickly as possible.

The grants are for farmers and growers to undertake urgent work, including fencing, and clearing silt to save trees and vines.

The following grants are available:

  • Grants for pastoral and arable farmers/growers of up to $10,000 to help initial recovery on-farm, such as repairs to water infrastructure for stock and fencing.
  • Grants for horticulture growers of $2000 per hectare up to a maximum of $40,000 to remove silt from trees and vines, support clean−up and other time-sensitive work to minimise future losses, such as preserving trees in orchards and vines for future production.

To be eligible, your principal income from the primary industry business operating on the affected property is greater than 51% of the farming income. For collectively owned Māori land, this consideration does not apply.

To apply for a recovery grant please complete this form with the required supplementary information and send a signed copy to Funding@mpi.govt.nz.

Any funding approved by MPI will be subject to the terms and conditions set out in the last page of this form.  Please read the terms and conditions carefully, before applying.

It will be important to retain invoices and keep a record of your own time spent on recovery work and time spent on recovery work by your employees for any grants approved by MPI. MPI may require repayment of any funds granted and paid to the applicant that are not used for the intended purpose described above.
