Community Grants 2014/15 funding round is now open.
Community Grants help local organisations pay for specific projects or maintenance of facilities that benefit our community, support not-for-profit community organisations which have a positive impact on the community and recognise, support and enhance volunteer effort in the community.
Last year the Community Boards allocated an amount of $129,750 from the Community Grant Fund amongst those that applied for funding in 2013/2014.
Some of the recipients from the 2013/14 round were the Coromandel Flying Club for a helipad; The Friends of Te Whanganui-A-Hei Marine Reserve Trust to provide the 'Experiencing Marine Reserves' programme; Matariki Ki Tairua Trust to assist with establishment costs and consents for the He Waka Tuturu; Totally Thames Inc for the Wearable Arts Festival and the Whangamata Gymnastics Club to purchase new floor mats.
