New Zealand water subsidy

Water is important because it is the easiest we can take care of our body. Water is important for our overall health and well being and any way to get clean drinking water is an issue facing the world. 

Water subsidies not only affect the United States but all over the world as well such as New Zealand.  On July 30 the associate health minister approved $9.3 million to help improve drinking water supplies in 22 small communities in southern New Zealand. This approval was part of the 2013/2014 Drinking Water Subsidy Scheme. This approval is also towards the smaller water suppliers because larger water suppliers already have safe drinking water. Though these small communities only house around 17000 people, it would still make a big difference. Some clauses part of the DWSS are that $10 million will be available until 2015 and paying 85% of the cost. The deadline to apply for this scheme is February 28, 2015 and in order to be eligible, your population must be between 25-5000 and have a deprivation of clean drinking water.
