Youth projects get funding
A unique youth fund is accepting applications from young people for community projects.
Youth Affairs Minister Nikki Kaye says $200,000 is available through the Ministry of Youth Development’s 2014 Youth Fund.
‘‘[It] supports community projects designed and led by young people (aged 12-24), or by youth organisations in partnership with young people that develop active community participation,’’ Ms Kaye says.
Funding will be between $2000 and $7000. Applications close at noon on September 24. The projects need to start from January 1, and be completed by June 30.
