Civil Defence Payments
Civil Defence Payments are available for people who have been affected by the flooding. You don't have to be on a benefit to qualify for a Civil Defence Payment. In most cases it doesn't matter what your income is or what assets you have.
These can help with:
· Emergency food, clothing and bedding if yours has been damaged or destroyed.
· Accommodation costs if you have been evacuated and are staying in accommodation such as a motel, hotel or temporary rental accommodation.
· Loss of income due to an inability to work caused by the flooding.
· Payment if you have evacuees staying with you in places such as a private home, marae or community centres.
