Community Discretionary Fund
Are you part of a community group looking for support with local projects? We provide discretionary funds to support community organisations who offer services or support in the Waipa district.
Allocation of these funds is done at the start of each financial year, through our Cambridge and Te Awamutu Community Boards and the Pirongia Ward Committee. The boards and committee may also accept requests for funds during the year on a case-by-case basis.
2020/21 Discretionary Grant applications are now open in and will close mid-August. Applications will be considered at the Cambridge Community Board meeting, 2 September, Te Awamutu Community Board, 8 September, and/or the Pirongia Ward Committee, 16 September.
If funding is still available following the September meetings, the Community Board and Committee will consider applications for financial assistance during the course of the year, for projects before 30 June 2021.
Successful grant recipients are required to submit an accountability report once their grant has been spent before 30 June of the year following the grant.
