CREATIVE COMMUNITIES—NELSON CITY SCHEME
- For projects within the Nelson City Council wards only
- For assistance up to a usual maximum of $1200 per allocation
- Funding are decisions usually made within six weeks from closing date
Please be advised of changes to the closing dates for receiving applications to this scheme. For the 2013 / 2014 year and beyond, there will be only two funding rounds and not three as in previous years.
Grant application closing dates for the Nelson Scheme will now be:
First funding round: 1st August 2013 ~ for projects taking place between
1st September 2013 and the end of March 2014.
First Round Applications now closed
Second funding round: 1st March 2014 ~ for projects taking place between
1st April 2014 and the end of August 2014.
The March and August closing dates will remain in place for subsequent years.
This change will obviously require more forward planning by applicants, and we hope that this does not cause any inconvenience.
Lloyd Harwood, Creative Communities Nelson City Scheme Administrator may be contacted should any potential applicants require any assistance in project preparations, or have other enquiries.
