Kāpiti Coast District Council has funding available through its Community Grants to support community-based projects, programmes and events that contribute to achieving positive social outcomes for people living in the Kāpiti Coast District.
The grant is for non-for-profit organisations and is contestable, with $33,800 available for the current financial year.
Applications for this funding round close at 5pm, Thursday 5 May.
Projects or initiatives with the following elements may qualify for funding:
