Small grants for reducing waste at events
Public and community events can create a lot of waste which often ends up in landfill.
In our environmentally-conscious region, events offer a great opportunity to reduce waste going to landfill and to educate and support people to avoid or reduce the creation of waste. Nelson City Council has a funding pool of $10,000 available to support the avoidance or reduction of waste at events. This funding is available in the form of small grants of up to $250, and applications are open from 7 January until 30 June 2019, unless the fund has been fully allocated prior to that date.
WHO CAN APPLY FOR A GRANT? Event organisers (school, community or commercial) – one grant per event per year. WHEN CAN EVENT ORGANISERS APPLY? Applications are open until 30 June 2019, or until all the funding has been allocated.
