Kāpiti Coast District Council invites expressions of interest for funding
The Kāpiti Coast District Council has a new approach to the way it supports not-for-profit organisations to deliver social services in the district and the expression of interest for the $345,000 social investment fund opens Monday, closing on 21 February.
Not-for-profit organisations offering social services in the Kāpiti district can apply for contestable funding to support initiatives or programmes that contribute to the Council’s new social investment priorities; supporting connected and safe communities and improving the overall capability of Kāpiti’s community and social sector.
Programme design and delivery manager Tania Parata is optimistic about the new process.
“This new strategic approach to social investment funding will mean Council can partner with community and social service organisations to reach better outcomes. We’ll be able to target funding to communities and places where there is greatest opportunity for initiatives to deliver most benefit.”
Ideas shortlisted from the expressions of interest will progress to a proposal stage with new contracts in place from July.
