Applications for funding now open
Applications are open for funding for projects with an environmental or heritage focus.
The Auckland Council’s Environmental Initiatives Fund grants up to $15,000 to non profit organisations provided they can meet half of the project cost.
‘‘Whether it’s historic heritage restoration projects, pest eradication programmes, or stream plantings, we encourage everyone working on a worthwhile and meaningful project to apply,’’ council’s environmental services manager Gael Ogilvie says.
Balmoral’s St Alban’s Anglican Church received $6,739 from the 2012 fund towards urgent painting work.
Applications for funding close on September 26.
