Manawatu District Council operates a variety of funding schemes to assist non-profit groups and organisations, as well as individuals in the district to run, promote or participate in programmes or events that best fulfil outcomes identified in the Long Term Plan.
Following a recent review of community funding, changes have been made to some of our policies, criteria and applications. The new policies came into effect on July 1 and are available on relate to the Community Fund, Regional Event Fund and Representative Grants.
As at July 1 2015, the Community Fund and the Event Fund applications will be considered during three funding rounds each year - 30 March, 30 June and 30 September. Applicants need to be aware of the new dates and consider these during their planning phase to ensure they apply with enough time for their project or event. Representative Grants will continue to receive monthly applications.
