Nelson Tasman Mayoral Relief Fund Update
The Nelson Tasman Mayoral Relief Fund is now over $600k! Thank you to all of the incredible individuals, organisations, and businesses who have made such generous donations. We want this money to get into the Nelson Tasman community as soon as possible so If you or a business you own have been financially impacted by the weather event please consider making an application to the Mayoral Relief Fund.
• Mayoral Relief Fund is open to Nelson City and Tasman District residents, ratepayers or business owners, and not-for-profit organisations who have suffered (and are experiencing) financial hardship because of the flood event that began on 17 August 2022.
• The fund can help businesses who experienced extra financial burden (including significant loss of income), or costs due to the August 2022 flood event which is not covered by insurance or other funds.
• The aim is that these grants go some way towards helping alleviate the emotional and financial stress experienced due to the August 2022 flood event.
If your business has:
• Suffered a significant drop in income caused directly by the August 2022 weather event,
• Was viable before the event and can recover successfully,
• Is the primary source of income to the business owner,
• Pays staff or yourself a wage, and
• The business is located in, or provides services in, the Nelson Tasman region;
Then please consider applying to the fund for support.
Documents for businesses to provide:
• Accounts for the last two full financial years
• Year-to-date management accounts showing the drop in revenue OR independently verified proof of equivalent (such as a letter from your accountant evidencing the proportionate reduction in income compared to the previous year)
• Cash flow forecast through to the end of December 2022
• Estimated budget and/or quotes showing how funds will be spent.
If you are not able to supply all these documents initially, apply anyway with an explanation for what is not included.
