Community fund for river health

Community fund for river health

Media release: 2 September 2014


Nelson City Council has funding available for members of the community to take on their own project that will help improve the health of the Maitai/Mahitahi River.

Council has a total budget of $40,000 to contribute towards grants of $300 to $5,000 for initiatives to be completed by 30 June 2015.
Applicants must demonstrate how they intend to contribute to their project by matching the dollar value of funds requested from Council. This could include volunteer hours, donations of goods or professional services, and other in-kind support.

People are encouraged to think creatively about the type of project they would like supported. The fund can cover the cost of tools, resources, products or services.

The Maitai/Mahitahi Community Fund is for new, community-driven activities and projects that are in line with the Project Maitai/Mahitahi goal: to improve the health of the Maitai/Mahitahi and its tributaries (the York and Brook Streams) so that the community can safely swim in, take kai from, feel proud of and value the Maitai/Mahitahi as a taonga (treasure).

Not-for-profit groups, including schools, Māori/iwi, community groups, partnerships and individuals can apply for funding.

For more information, please visit nelson.govt.nz and search “Maitai Community Fund”, or email the projects team at Maitai.Projects@ncc.govt.nz. People are encouraged to get in touch early to see if their idea might work.
