Long term community 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 at mpdc.nz/grants.

We also encourage applicants or potential applications 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.
