Community grants funding applications open next month

Applications for grants from the Christchurch City Council’s Strengthening Communities Fund for 2014-15 open on 15 February.

Community groups can submit funding applications for projects running from September 2014 to August 2015 via two funding streams.

Applications for the Strengthening Communities Fund, for grants over $5000, open on Saturday 15 February and close on Monday 31 March 2014. This is followed by applications for the Small Grants Fund, grants under $5000, which open on Wednesday 16 April and close on Saturday 31 May 2014.

Starting Wednesday 29 January, the Council is holding a series of information sessions for community groups to ask any questions and seek information prior to submitting their funding application.

The sessions will be held in venues across the city and provide information on funding applications for both the Strengthening Communities and Small Grants funds.

Council Community Support Unit Manager Carolyn Gallagher says: “In the 2013-14 funding round for the Strengthening Communities Fund and the Small Grants Fund, the Council granted a total of $6,704,821 to more than 800 community groups.

“Applicants apply for funding and are assessed using a number of criteria. Successful organisations are those that can demonstrate a sustainable, strategic, community focused approach with a significant presence within their community of benefit. Projects must also demonstrate a contribution to the Council’s outcomes and priorities.”

Organisations are required to contribute towards their own project(s) and not rely on the Council grant as their sole source of funding.

The Council’s Community Support Unit staff make a recommendation to the Council for metropolitan projects; or Community Boards for local projects, which make the funding decisions.

For further information visit www.ccc.govt.nz/communityfunding or call the Council’s Customer Call Centre on 03 941 8999 or 0800 800 169.

Gordon Campbell:
On The Northland By-Election

Supposedly, Winston Peters’ victory in Northland has exposed the simmering dissatisfaction with the government that exists out in the provinces. Yet it remains to be seen whether this defeat will have much significance – and not simply because if and when Labour resumes business as usual in the Northland seat at the next election, Peters’ hold on it could simply evaporate.

On Saturday, National’s electorate vote declined by 7,000 votes, as the 9,000 majority it won last September turned into a 4,000 vote deficit – mainly because Labour supporters followed the nod and wink given by Labour leader Andrew Little, and voted tactically for Peters. In the process, Labour’s vote went down from nearly 9,000 votes six months ago, to only 1,315 on Saturday. More>>

Gordon Campbell: On A Funeral In Asia, The Northland By-Election, And News Priorities

Supposedly, New Zealand’s destiny lies in Asia, and that was one of Foreign Minister Murray McCully’s rationales for his bungled reforms at MFAT. OK. So, if that’s the case why didn’t Prime Minister John Key attend the state funeral on Sunday of Singapore’s founding leader Lee Kuan Yew? More>>

On Pacific Spying

So New Zealand spied on its friends and allies in the Pacific – and has not only been passing on the results to the NSA, but has apparently passed on the details of the Pacific’s relations with Taiwan to our other best friends, the Chinese. On the side, the Key government has also been using the security services to gauge the chances of Trade Minister Tim Groser landing the top job at the WTO... More>>
