Manawatū District Council operates a variety of funding schemes to assist not-for-profit groups, organisations and individuals in the district to run, promote or participate in programmes or events that contribute to achieving Council’s strategic outcomes. There is also funding for sporting, cultural or artistic pursuits. Our Community Funding Policy has full details.
If you are planning a large-scale project or your request does not qualify for any of the above funds you should consider asking for your initiative to be included in Council’s 10 Year Plan budget. We start working on our budget almost a year before it is adopted so you will need to have your request to us by 1 September 2020 for consideration for the 10 Year Plan 2021-2031.
