Waipā has a rich cultural, historical and environmental heritage that is often maintained by the time and efforts of our community.
The Heritage Fund is designed to assist with the preservation and enhancement of our unique environmental, cultural, and historical heritage in the Waipā district. The fund is available to community members or groups working to safeguard our district's rich and diverse heritage.
The funding can be used to assist with physical works for heritage buildings, objects, natural vegetation, habitats, cultural or archaeological sites. The funds may also be used to assist with obtaining specialist advice where appropriate.
The Fund has a total annual value of $70,000.
There are two contestable funding rounds each year closing 30 June and 30 December, where applicants can apply for grants from the Fund.
