Central Leader - - Front Page -

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.

For more de­tails visit www.arc.govt.nz or con­tact Court­ney Gallen on 366-2000 ext 8255.
