Funding opportunities for increasing participation in creative arts

Published on 01 March 2018


Horowhenua District Council is again inviting applications for funding from the Creative Communities Scheme it administers.

Applications for round two of the 2017/2018 financial year close at 5pm on Friday 30 March 2018. $13,500 is available in this funding round.

The Creative Communities Grant is a national scheme, funded by Creative New Zealand and administrated by local government authorities. It provides arts funding to local groups and individuals. There is no limit to how much can be applied for, but most grants tend to be under $2000.
