If you are part of an organisation that provides a community service, activity or event that is not-for-profit, you could be eligible for one of The Thames Coromandel Community Board grants.

Each Community Board area has a contestable grants pool to encourage and support not-for-profit organisations that have a positive impact on the community.

The grants help local organisations pay for specific projects or the maintenance of facilities that benefit communities.

Event sponsorship funding applications for all Community Board areas are also to be submitted through this Community Board grant programme.

Every year they get a huge number of applications and the fund is limited. There will be a lot of groups and organisations doing it tough with the fall out of COVID-19 so it’s suggested in the applications, if they can also demonstrate how this has impacted on them as well, that helps the Boards make informed decisions.

Also, due to Annual Plan revisions and to reduce rates, some of the values have been reduced to try and help with savings.

The grant values available in each area are:

Coromandel/Colville Board Community - $35,000Mercury Bay Community Board - $30,000Whangamata Community Board Grants - $30,000Tairua/Pauanui Community Board Grants - $37,000Thames Community Board - $60,000

Applications for Thames Coromandel Community Board grants close 31 July 2020.
