Horowhenua District Council is opening applications for a new Community Support Grant starting in August to support community groups and initiatives within the community.
The new Community Grant includes the Shannon Community Development and Creative Communities Scheme Grants.
Starting from August 1, those interested can apply through the Council website for round 1 until the deadline date on the 31st.
Community Development Advisor, Neil Hirini, says an increase in application numbers in recent years has been great.
“It is great to be able to support our community in this way, and I look forward to once again working with applicants to support them through the grants application process,” he said.
“If you do need help, Council’s Community Development team is happy to assist.”
Many have received grants in the past. This includes Horowhenua Special Olympics, Menzshed Foxton, Pasifika for tomorrow and the Shannon County Christmas Carnival.
Additional funding categories were applied from a recent review which consists of Community Development, Vibrant Communities, Community and Social Services, Special Projects and Rural Halls.
Other grants added are Creative Communities, Shannon Community Development Trust and Waste Minimisation.
Read the full descriptions of each one and what they are for in the Community Funding section.
As per usual, grants range from a price tag between $500 and up to $3,000. A SmartyGrants account will need to be set up for applicants applying.
