Community Event Fund
The Community Event Fund supports grass-roots events which create opportunities to build and celebrate community pride and for our communities to connect and celebrate our diversity. Events contribute to Waipā being a great place to live and maximise our facilities and public spaces. The fund supports not-for-profit community organisations hosting inclusive, low-cost events in our community.
Applications for the 2019/20 funding round are now closed.
Please note, if you are a previously successful applicant to the District Promotion or Community Event Fund committee you will need to have completed a post event report for that event to be eligible for this new funding round.
To find out more about these events and when they are being held, make sure you keep an eye on whatsonwaipa.co.nz as the events begin their promotion over the next year.

All event organisers intending to hold an event in the Waipā district also need to complete an event application form, whether or not they are successful in receiving a grant, or apply for a grant.
