If you have suffered hardship as a result of the 4 September 2010 earthquake or
the 22 February 2011 aftershock, you can apply for a relief grant (normally $250)

•You must have been resident in the Waimakariri District at the time of the earthquakes
•Only one application will be considered for each household (flatmates should
apply jointly and bank account details should match the names on the lease) and
the grant is given on a one-off basis.
Application forms are available from all Waimakariri District Council Service Centres
(Rangiora, Kaiapoi and Oxford) or on our website
