Nelson City Council Community Assistance Policy Review

Nelson City Council is currently reviewing the Community Assistance Policy and process and is seeking community feedback and ideas (please see policy attached). The intention of the review is to ensure that Community Assistance Funding and Community Leases and Licences most effectively meet community need.
In regard to the community assistance fund you may like to consider the following aspects:
– Council hearing
– Decision panel
– Match funding/collaborative applications
– One-off grants
– Any other specifics of the criteria

Please submit your response to Nicola.Mercer@ncc.govt.nz by Tuesday 13 January. A brief paragraph or bullet point list is fine, we’re aware that it’s a busy time of year.

Many thanks
Nicola Mercer
Social Development Adviser
