The Tasman District Council allocates funds, via contestable grants, to support and encourage community-led projects.
Last year, the Council invested in projects ranging from local facility upgrades to local history displays, emergency service equipment to pest control, and local art to ANZAC Commemorations.
To be considered applications must be for initiatives within Tasman and/or demonstrate the benefits to Tasman residents. Ideally, the funds applied for will be for a specific service that has community support.
This year the total allocation is $219,000 over 8 categories;
• Community and Economic Development Initiatives $30,000
• Arts/Culture/Heritage/Museums $32,000
• Festivals and Events $40,000
• Youth and Children $25,000
• Social Services $21,000
• Environment $20,000
• Emergency Services $16,000
• Sport and Recreation Facilities Fund $35,000
Applications close 31 August.
