Community Funding structure     

4.       In March 2013, the Regional Development and Operations Committee (RDOC) resolved to continue the interim community funding approach while the community grants policy was developed.  

5.       Two community funding rounds have been held for Waitematā to date. The third round closed on 06 March 2015.

6.       Through the Local Board Community Grants Fund, the Waitematā Local Board aims to assist community groups in their activities, projects, programmes, initiatives and events that make a positive contribution within the local area.

7.       When reviewing applications, the local board should be guided by the following criteria (these are not eligibility criteria; rather they are guidelines to help the local board when considering the merits of each proposal):


·    The proposal’s alignment with Waitematā Local Board Plan priorities

·    Ensuring a range of community activities are supported at a local level

·    Providing seed funding to make things happen in community development

·    Achieving equitable distribution of funds across the board area

·    Encouraging community involvement and participation

·    The proposal’s alignment with the board’s priorities, such as

supporting vibrant, connected and sustainable communities

a distinctive, high-quality built environment that embraces its heritage

connected, healthy transport options

places for people

an innovative economic hub

respecting and enhancing natural environments.

8.       With regard to criteria, the local board specifies that grants are to be a minimum of $500 and a maximum of $5000 (except in exceptional circumstances).  No grants are to be made retrospectively.

9.       This fund is allocated at the local board’s discretion. In accordance with its fiduciary duties, the local board is to act honestly, avoid conflicts of interest and act in what the local board believes to be the best interests of the community.

Community Funding Budget

10.     The Waitematā Local Board has set a Local Board Community Funding budget of $100,000 for the 2014/2015 financial year.

11.     Grants totaling $60,014 have been approved to date, leaving a balance of $39,986 for the remaining round, which closed on 06 March 2015.


Local Board views and implications

12.     This is the first opportunity for the local board to consider this information.

Māori impact statement

13.     Community funding is a general programme of interest and accessible to a wide range of groups, including Maori. Maori are therefore likely to benefit alongside other groups in the community.


14.     The allocation of grants to community groups is within the adopted annual plan.

15.     The decisions sought by this report do not trigger the Auckland Council Significance Policy.
