As announced a number of weeks ago, the Hawke’s Bay Horticulture Advisory Group (HBHAG) has obtained funding through the North Island Weather Events Fund (NIWE) to pay third-party advisors to support your financial recovery.
This could mean helping you to prepare business plans for your bank, or to support your application to the Kānoa Primary Producer Finance Scheme and/or The Treasury Loan Guarantee Scheme.
The funding is limited and will be allocated based on the number of qualifying applications submitted. Successful applicants will be issued with confirmation to redeem the support payment with their nominated advisor.
We encourage any grower materially impacted by Cyclone Gabrielle and/or Cyclone Hale who has not already submitted their application to do so by completing the following simple online form and submitting it on or before Thursday, 30 November 2023.
