New Community Pride and Vibrancy Fund Opens


Thursday 11 October 2018

The Central Hawkes Bay District Council is pleased to announce the launch of the new Community Pride and Vibrancy fund.

The fund seeks to support community opportunities to create pride and vibrancy in Central Hawke’s Bay and is designed to support projects that are an activity, programme or development that will occur in a public space that supports our Community to THRIVE.

Successful applications will result in outcomes that support our communities’ identity, attract people’s interest, inspire and engage people and overall, contribute to a sense of community.

“We are really looking forward to receiving applications from across our community and supporting some unique innovative local initiatives”, says Council Community Development Lead Christine Renata.

The fund is staggered to increase over three years, being funded from an overall pool of funding approved in the 2018-2028 Long Term Plan for Community and Town Centre Planning as an outcome of Project THRIVE.

Applications are now open with $10,000 available in the first year which ends 30 June 2019. While the fund has a monetary value, applications to the fund may not always be monetary and could include the provision of materials, labour, staff time or other support.”

“There is a lot to be positive about in Central Hawke’s Bay”, says Doug Tate Group Manager Customer and Community Partnerships.  “We hope this new fund will further support the surge of positivity that we are experiencing as a community and District”.
