Local community groups with an
arts or cultural focus, as well as junior sporting teams or clubs are being
encouraged to get their applications in for Creative Communities and Sport NZ
grant funding, which are now open this month.
Ashburton District Council is
welcoming applications for the second round of Creative Communities Scheme
funding for the 2017/18 year, as well as the Sport NZ Rural Travel Fund, and
groups have until 31 March to get their applications in.
“Both of these grants play an
important role in supporting community activities that provide cultural or
sporting opportunities for people in our district,” Council Community Relations
Manager Vincie Billante says.
“If your group has an artistic
project involving things such as dance, music, theatre or crafts, or your
junior sporting team needs assistance with travel costs to competitions, the
Creative Communities Grant and Sport NZ Rural Travel Fund are available to
offer financial support.”
Creative New Zealand provides
Creative Communities Scheme funding to councils across the country to
distribute in their area. The scheme recognises the unique place of local arts
projects in communities and is assessed by a local committee who have an
extensive background in the district’s varied arts community.
Sport NZ provide funds to
councils to support rural sports clubs and school teams travelling to local
information about the grant and funding application forms and criteria can be
found on the Council’s website or from the Council office.
