The NZ Red Cross announced two new winter grants yesterday.
The first is for those with school age children (5 to 18 years) and the second for people with pre-existing medical conditions. The grants are designed to help those eligible to get back on their feet financially. The grants are in the form of electricity heating subsidies.
