Hawkes Bay - $100,000 For Regional Development

Hawkes Bay To Get $100,000 For Regional Development

"I am pleased to announce that Industry New Zealand has allocated $100,000 to the Hawkes Bay region for the second round of the Regional Partnership Programme," said the Minister for Regional Development Jim Anderton.

"I know that in the Hawkes Bay the partnerships will create a significant return to local people through the Regional Partnerships Programme, which is to be led in this region by Vision 2020.

"The ideas that each plan needs have to come from local people committed to making their regional economy work. In the Hawkes Bay many people have been involved and local groups, councils and iwi have been part of the process," said Jim Anderton.

Other regions to receive funding from Industry New Zealand announced today are Canterbury $200,000, Southland and the Eastern Bay of Plenty - $100,000 each. Rotorua will receive funding of $133,000 for stages one and two, while Manawatu will receive $135,000. Wellington will receive $70,000 and the Wairarapa $82,500.

The partnership grants can be up to $100,000 for the regional plans and up to $100,000 for making sure the plans can be implemented (capacity building). Funding of up to $2 million per region is available to contribute to major regional initiatives that come out of the strategies developed in the first two stages.

Fourteen regions have secured grants in the previous three rounds amounting to $1,300,000. Hawkes Bay received $99,668 in stage one. This round sees the total committed increase to $2,220,500 for 19 regional partnerships.

Gordon Campbell: On The Peters/Ardern Triumph

There are a lot of good reasons to feel joyful about this outcome. It is what so many young voters – the best hope for the country’s future – wanted.

Far more important than the implications for the Economy Gods ( is the dollar up or down? ) last night’s outcome will also mean many, many vulnerable New Zealanders will have a better life over the next three years at least.

Yet the desire for change was in the majority, across the country..>>>More
