Vibrant Communities Grant
Vibrant Communities Grant ($10,000)
As an initiative of Council’s Pride and Vibrancy Action Plan, the Vibrant Communities Grant was introduced in 2015 to support projects that build a sense of vibrancy in the Horowhenua District.
Each financial year the Grants and Funding Subcommittee of Council determines the strategic priorities of the fund and how it will be administered at its first meeting of the year (August). The inaugural fund (2016/2017) supported the painting of the fences at Solway Park.
For 2017/2018 the Grants Subcommittee announced that the fund be directed towards Interactive and intergenerational projects.
