Community grants scheme funding round is now open

The Kāpiti Coast District Council has opened applications for this year’s community grants scheme with a total of $33,500 available to community groups and organisations.

Council’s Programme Design and Delivery Manager Tania Parata says the scheme assists not-for-profit Kāpiti Coast organisations in the community.

“We’re able to support a wide range of community-based organisations that are trying to improve the quality of life for people living here in Kāpiti.”

The annual funding opportunity is earmarked for not-for-profit community-based organisations supporting local projects, programmes, and events contributing to social outcomes in the Kāpiti District. A maximum of $2000 is available for each eligible application that fits the scheme’s criteria of:

  • Building resilient, sustainable communities;
  • Encouraging greater community participation;
  • Improving the quality of life of the participants; and
  • Working in partnership with a range of community groups, including iwi.
