Community Projects and Events Funding

16 December 2015

Due to recent changes in legislation, the Long Term Plan and Annual Plan submission process will no longer be used to seek funding support from Council. 

If you are intending to seek funding for community projects or events from Council, we’d like to ensure you’re aware of the various options available. Information about the various sources is available on the community funding page of our website:

http://www.waikatodistrict.govt.nz/Services/Funding.aspx

If you currently have been allocated funds by council through the Long Term Plan, this will not be affected
