The Christchurch Earthquake Appeal Trust has agreed to grant $100,000 to Addington Action over 2 years to assist with the repair of a minimum of 80 earthquake damaged homes of uninsured vulnerable people in the south of Christchurch.
The contract has been drawn up and once signed, payment is conditional on the provision of the latest audited accounts.
$80,000 is for building materials.
$20,000 is for administration costs associated with the minor repairs to earthquake damaged homes.
It is expected that most of the $20,000 will be spent on establishing and operating workshop buildings at 124 Garlands Rd which will be used as a base for doing these repairs.
An official announcement will no doubt be made further down the track with more details.
