Time to apply for grants
Does your community group want to create new habitats for native birds, rejuvenate historic buildings, or keep pests at bay?
The Auckland Regional Council’s environmental initiatives fund could help.
Applications are open for the fund which makes grants to support community projects with an environmental, heritage or cultural focus.
Since it was set up in 1999, $2.6 million has been given to 1130 community projects.
This year individual grant limits have increased to $15,000.
For the first time, applications can be submitted online using the council website and staff will run a series of information workshops during May .
Applications close on July 1.
