Anne Tolley | Canterbury Earthquake Recovery
Social Development Minister Anne Tolley has announced that the Temporary Accommodation Assistance (TAA) programme for Canterbury residents affected by earthquakes is to be extended.
The TAA supports homeowners with additional costs such as rent, board, or motel stays, when they are in temporary accommodation while waiting for repairs to their homes to be completed. Up to $330 per week is available for these temporary costs.
“Over $50 million has been paid to Canterbury homeowners through this programme since 2011,” says Mrs Tolley.
