Changes to the Community Support Package - North Island floods and Cyclone Gabrielle

Changes have been announced to the Community Support Package set up to help those impacted by the recent North Island floods and Cyclone Gabrielle.

This Community Support Package is for community groups and providers so they can continue to deliver response and recovery efforts for people, whānau and communities in affected regions around Aotearoa New Zealand.

$2m has been added to the Food fund and the funding caps for both the Provider Support Fund and the Community Support Fund have been increased.
