Creative Communities Funding
We have a partnership with Creative New Zealand to promote, support and increase participation in community arts and cultural activities in the Waipā district. Each year Creative New Zealand provides Creative Communities Scheme funding to Council to distribute.
There are two funding rounds a year, in April and September. There is no maximum amount you can apply for, however grants usually range between $200 - $2,000.
Applications now closed
Any group, organisation or individual that can meet the grant criteria can apply; however grants are not for individual gain. The Creative Communities Scheme grants are allocated by an assessment committee made up of members of the community with interest and knowledge of the arts.
If you have previously received a grant, please ensure your organisation has completed and submitted the Project Report form below. The form needs to be returned within two months after the project/event is completed. This is a requirement before future funding will be considered.
