If your com­mu­nity group is look­ing for fund­ing from Mata­mataPi­ako Dis­trict Coun­cil, now is the time to ap­ply.

Com­mu­nity Grants

Coun­cil al­lo­cate $30,000 ($10,000 per ward) ev­ery year in two fund­ing rounds to help fund com­mu­nity projects, such as run­ning an event, pro­vid­ing train­ing or pur­chas­ing equip­ment among other things.

Non-com­mer­cial, not funded from cen­tral gov­ern­ment and not­for-profit groups can ap­ply for fund­ing of up to $2500 from the com­mu­nity grant scheme dur­ing each fund­ing round.

Long Term Plan Grants

Applications are also open for fund­ing through the 2018-28 Long Term Plan. There is no spe­cific amount or limit al­lo­cated for these grants, as all applications will be con­sid­ered for in­clu­sion in the draft Long Term Plan bud­gets.

Long Term Plan grants are also for com­mu­nity projects but are open to ev­ery­body, not just the not-for-profit sec­tor.

Applications are open now un­til 5pm on Oc­to­ber 2. Ap­pli­cants will also have the op­por­tu­nity to present their ap­pli­ca­tion in per­son at a meet­ing on Oc­to­ber 18.
