Under this scheme, the community boards will consider applications for a variety of activities including:

Applications are open from 1 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 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 an eight week turnaround period dependent on the timing of Community Board meetings. You will be notified of the Community Board’s decision following the relevant decision meeting.
