Each year the Council's community boards set aside an amount of money to fund young people in their local community.
Under this scheme, the community boards will consider applications for a variety of activities including:
On average, successful applicants to the fund have received around $300 from the community boards.
Applications are open from 1st July each year. Once the annual allocation of funds is exhausted the fund is closed.
Before applying contact your local Strengthening Communities Advisor or Community Recreation Advisor, as each community board represents a different community and therefore may have different objectives and priorities within the overall objectives of the city's Community Outcomes. It is important to discuss this when you make your enquiry.
Applications could have up to 8 weeks turn around period dependant on the timing of Community Board meetings. You will be notified of the Community Board’s decision following the relevant decision meeting.
