Community Discretionary Fund
Is your community group looking for support for its next project? We provide discretionary funds to help community organisations who offer services or support in Waipā.
2022/23 funding dates
The 2022/23 funding round one opens for applications on Monday 4 July 2022, and will close 12 August 2022. Allocation of funds will be decided in September 2022, through our Cambridge and Te Awamutu Community Boards and the Pirongia Ward Committee.
A second round for discretionary fund applications will open 6 February 2023 and will close 17 March 2023. Applications will be considered at the Cambridge Community Board, Te Awamutu Community Board and the Pirongia Ward Committee meetings in April 2023.
Please note that the allocation for discretionary funding has changed from previous years and will only be considered outside of the two funding rounds described if an application can clearly demonstrate an urgent requirement for funds.
