What the fund is for
This annual grant scheme is available for not for profit groups and organisations. It's a great opportunity to develop new activities and initiatives that can make a real difference in Palmerston North.
The fund supports new ideas, particularly those which:
- develop, provide and advocate for services and facilities that create a connected, welcoming and inclusive community
- ensure the city has a healthy community where everyone has access to healthy, safe and affordable housing and neighbourhoods
- build community capacity to take ownership and encourage community leadership of solutions, including better coordination between community organisations and groups
- are aligned with Council's goal of Palmerston North becoming a city where people feel safe and are safe.
These are some of the groups that have previously received funding:
