Local Discretionary Fund

There are four Local Discretionary Funds, one for each ward in South Taranaki (Eltham-Kaponga, Patea, Taranaki Coastal and Te Hawera). The purpose of these Funds is to assist small projects within each ward that encourage groups with non-profit making or charitable aims to develop services, facilities, amenities or programmes for:

  • Recreation and Sport;
  • Entertainment and Amusement;
  • Culture and Arts; and
  • General Benefit of the Community.

These funds should generally be treated as a last resort after all other attempts to raise funds or obtain assistance have been unsuccessful. Closing dates can be found on page 4 of the application form.

For further information, email funding@stdc.govt.nz or phone 0800 111 323 or 2780555.
