Have Your Say

Long Term Plan Grants

If your club, group or organisation wants funding from Council in the next three years - now is the time to apply!

We are setting draft budgets for the 2018 Long Term Plan, including allocating funding for grants. Applications are open now until 5pm on 2 October. You can apply online or download an application form below.

We also encourage applicants or potential applicants to come along to one of our funding information sessions, where you will be able to discuss your application with staff and get tips on the application process:

  • Matamata – Monday 21 August, 12-1.30pm, Railside by the Green
  • Morrinsville – Wednesday 23 August, 12-1.30pm, Westpac Event Centre lounge
  • Te Aroha –  Thursday 24 August, 12-1.30pm, Council Chambers (35 Kenrick St)

Applicants will also have the option to present their application to Council in  person at a meeting on 18 October. Decisions on funding will be made in December 2017, and finalised in June 2018 following consultation on the draft Long Term Plan.

Note that this is a change to the timing of our previous grant process - don’t wait until we’re consulting on the Long Term Plan next year, as you might miss out.

We want to give grants to great community groups

Stay informed

Council makes decisions that affect everyone in our community. To ensure Council is making decisions that reflect what the community wants and needs, we need your input. Providing us with feedback is one way residents can make a positive contribution to the Matamata-Piako District and help Council to remain fair and effective. Sign up for email notifications about the town, topics or documents that you're interested in. We promise to only send you emails when we have something important to share (i.e. you won't get emails from us every day or every week), and you can subscribe to new lists or unsubscribe as it suits you.
