The Council's Priorities for the City:
The Community Outcomes Fund is distributed to established organisations who are legally constituted and working towards the Community Outcomes in the Long Term Plan. The fund assists groups to build the capacity of their organisation, or to assist with the long term development of the community sector in Porirua.
The Community Outcomes Fund 2012/2013 is closed for applications.
The Fund is distributed once a year. The Community Funding Sub-Committee of Council considers all eligible applications. Applications from sports and arts groups are not accepted. An Information Sheet and an Application Form are available from the link below, or from Porirua City Council Administration Building, Cobham Court
Organisations are not eligible to apply for both the COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT FUND and the COMMUNITY OUTCOMES FUND. They can only apply to one of the Funds in any one financial year, which is 1 July – 30 June.
