Funding Grants benefit community groups

21 Oct 2021, 6:35 PM

Waitomo District Council is proud to have allocated more than $230,000 worth of funding grants to support community groups and not-for-profit organisations.

The Single-Year Community Assistance Grant focuses on providing assistance for not-for profit community organisations that support community led projects.  These projects are aligned with Council Plans and Strategies and contribute and support the social, cultural, economic and environmental well-being of the Waitomo District.

The Multi-Year Community Partnership Grant covers a three-year period with grants paid annually.

It supports community organisations that offer services or facilities that make a significant contribution and improve well-being in the Waitomo District.

Grants are awarded through a contestable process, excluding Community Hall grants.

This will enables Elected Members to compare the relative merits of the funding applications they receive and to allocate grants from the funding pools as fairly as possible.

Waitomo District Council also administers special grants on behalf of external organisations including the Creative Communities Scheme, Sport New Zealand Rural Travel Fund and the DC Tynan Fund.
