Kāpiti Coast District Council announced on Wednesday that it had allocated a total of $40,000 in grants to 22 community groups in the area.

A meeting with the grants Allocation Committee was held before the dishing out of funding was initiated.

Councillor Jackie Elliott says she was pleased with such diversity of the social and community organisations that applied.

“Community groups have had higher demands on them due to the impacts of COVID-19, so a focus for this year is supporting grassroots projects and activities that help the community recover from the impacts,” she said.

“Work delivered through the grants builds resilient, sustainable communities through strengthening community participation, and encourages working in partnership with a range of community groups, including iwi.”

A large number of applications were submitted from current and newly formed community not-for-profits organisations.

Funding will go towards social wellbeing, housing, health and environmental restoration projects in the local region.

The benefits of the funding grants are that victim support and counselling for elders will be improved as a result.
