Community grants applications open - 26 July -1 September 2017
Are you running a neighbourhood event, or fundraising for a public space? Community grants funding may be available to help out.
This year, Council has set aside $30,000 each year ($10,000 for each ward) to assist funding community based projects. Applications for funding are open until 1 September, 2017.
Please note the Communty Grants Policy has been reviewed and the application form has changed for the next funding round. If any applications are received based on old criteria staff will contact you to ensure applications are not delayed.
The fund can be used to help organisations who are volunteer-based, are open to the public and are mainly funded from grants, donations or other public funding for community-based projects.
For the full criteria, please see the Community Grants Policy, available from mpdc.govt.nz/grants-and-funding.
You can view a copy of the policy and apply online at mpdc.govt.nz or view a copy of the policy and pick up an application form at any of our offices or libraries.
