Local Event Support Fund

The Waitakere Ranges Local Event Support Fund is still accepting event applications, which will occur from 1 September 2015 to 30 June 2016. Applications close at 10pm on 30 April 2015.

Your event needs to align with the Boards priorities and outcomes set out in our Local Board Plan. Grants should be targeted toward events/activities that:

• Support or enhance protection of the Waitakere Ranges Heritage area and align with the Waitakere Ranges Local Parks Events Plan
• Support/enhance or restore our unique natural environments, natural habitats and biodiversity
• Events that support or deliver thriving communities and promote youth wellbeing
• Events that support or deliver revitalised town centres and villages while keeping their essential character
• Activities that support a flourishing arts and cultural scene which recognises the inspiring settings and unique character of the area
• Recognise the cultural and historical heritage of the area, including projects connected to WW1 commemoration
• Support our diverse communities to be healthy and safe and people feel that they are valued, connected and belong

For further information, click on this link: Applicants should read this criteria guide in conjunction with the “Local event support fund guide for applicants 2014/15” which is available on the website.

The Waitākere Ranges Local Board recognises the importance of events in fostering strong, vibrant communities, developing local skills and providing economic opportunities. The board wants to provide and support local arts, culture and events experiences that connect people with each other, celebrate the unique identity of the area and are environmentally responsible. Ideally our events should be designed for locals to enjoy but welcoming to
visitors. To this end, Waitākere Ranges Local Board has created a contestable local event support fund 2014/2015
(running for the financial year July 2014 to June 2015).
