Community Grants & Awards

​​​​Taupo District Community Grants Sch​​eme

​Taupo District Council are committed to ensuring that our community grants are allocated and distributed fairly, transparently and efficiently.

This is done in two ways, through partnership agreements with Council and by grants distributed by independent distributors. 

Please note Council will consider a proposal to amend the Grants and Partnerships Policy to allow the funding of day-to-day vehicle runni​​ng costs, wages and salaries. This will be considered at the June 2018 Council meeting.

Partnership Agreem​ent 

A partnership agreement is an opportunity to work with Council for three years to deliver key outcomes that benefit the Taupo District. These used to be known as Service Level Agreements and were contestable through the Long-term Plan and Annual Plan processes.

Council is also supported by the Turangi-Tongariro Community Board and the Mangakino-Pouākani Representative Group to distribute funds.
