Community funding available

8 May 2015

Are you part of a local group that wants to run a community project within the Orakei Local Board area within the next year?

Round three of the Orakei Local Board Community Funding scheme is now open and is closing Friday 15 May at 9pm. Please ensure you submit your application before the closing time as no late applications will be accepted.

The local board recognises the vital role that community groups and organisations play in developing strong, sustainable communities and want to assist these groups and organisations to provide activities, projects, programmes, initiatives and events that make a positive contribution in the local area.

Priority will be given to groups that are from the local board area and align with the local boards priorities. The board will not fund legal costs, debt repayment or activities promoting particular political goals or religious ministry. Applicants are advised that the average grant is between $500 and $5000, however larger amounts will be considered in some cases. No retrospective grants will be awarded.
