Independent Distributors

Taupo District Council provides fi​nancial support for the community. The targeted​​ areas are:

  • Social Services
  • Arts, Culture and Heritage
  • Sports
  • Environment (this is a new area introduced in the 2018-2028 Long-term Plan). 

​To ensure that allocated funds are channelled to the right places within the Taupo District communities, independent distributors are engaged for each of the targeted areas. ​Council is also supported by the Turangi-Tongariro Community Board and the Mangakino-Pouākani Representative Gro​up to distribute funds.

​Further details about independent distributors are included in our Grants and Partnerships Policy​.
