Com­mu­nity groups asked to ap­ply for coun­cil’s grants

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

The Mata­mata- Pi­ako Dis­trict Coun­cil has al­lo­cated $15,000 a year to be dis­trib­uted to com­mu­nity groups through­out the dis­trict. The fund­ing will be split evenly, with the Mata­mata, Mor­rinsville and Te Aroha wards each re­ceiv­ing $ 5000 to as­sist com­mu­nity led projects and or­gan­i­sa­tions.

If your com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tion has a high ra­tio of vol­un­teers, a high de­gree of public ac­cess and is pri­mar­ily funded from grants, dona­tions or sim­i­lar then the coun­cil en­cour­ages you to ap­ply.

Ap­pli­ca­tions will be re­viewed in two fund­ing rounds. The sec­ond fund­ing round is now open, and closes next month.

Ap­pli­ca­tions will be con­sid­ered and a de­ci­sion will be made at ward meet­ings in mid-March. All ap­pli­cants will re­ceive writ­ten con­fir­ma­tion in late March in­form­ing them of whether their ap­pli­ca­tion has been suc­cess­ful.

For the full cri­te­ria, see the Com­mu­nity Grants Pol­icy. You can view a copy of the pol­icy and ap­ply on the coun­cil’s web­site or view a copy of the pol­icy and pick up an ap­pli­ca­tion form at any coun­cil of­fice or li­brary.

Ap­pli­ca­tions close March 4.
