Financial support


The Future of Severely Affected Locations (FOSAL) voluntary buy-out and relocation programme provides options for owners of Category 3 land. This land has been designated as being no longer safe to live on following the 2023 severe weather events due to the risk to life from future flooding.

There is currently no additional funding support available relating to Cyclone Gabrielle.



If you and your family have been affected by an emergency event, you may be able to get a Civil Defence Payment from Work and Income.
