Community-Led Development Programme (CLDP)

People seeking government money for community projects can apply under a new programme.

The Community-Led Development Programme (CLDP) replaces the Community Development Scheme (CDS) and comes as a pilot ends on June 30.

The CLDP budget starts at $1 million in 2016-17, rising to $3.56 million in 2019-20.

During the same period the CDS will be phased out. All funding from the CLDP pilot and the CDS will be combined for the CLDP.
