Taupo District Community Grants Scheme
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.
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.
Grants distributed by independent distributors
With assistance from independent distributors, Council provides financial support throughout the Taupo District for the following areas:
- Social Services
- Arts, Culture and Heritage
Council is also supported by the Turangi-Tongariro Community Board and the Mangakino-Pouākani Representative Group to distribute funds.
