Chinese Poll Tax Heritage Trust Funding Round Now Open

Members of the public are invited to apply to the current funding round of the Chinese Poll Tax Heritage Trust.

The Trust chairman, Mr Paul Chin, encourages people to make applications for proposals that support the aims of the Trust.

The Trust funds activities that promote the preservation and awareness of Chinese New Zealand history and contributions of early Chinese settlers, as well as projects that provide tangible support for Chinese New Zealanders’ history, language and culture.

The Trust distributes up to $200,000 in grants to organisations and individuals through two funding rounds each year.

Recent funding from the Trust has supported restoration of a Chinese heritage site at Lawerence, a Chinese youth leadership camp and various cultural events and Chinese festivals.

To apply for funding, or to learn more about the Chinese Poll Tax Heritage Trust and its work, please visit the Community Matters website:

www.communitymatters.govt.nz or phone 0800 824 824.

Applications for funding close on 23 March 2022
