Neighbourhood Support New Zealand Contestable Funds update September 2011

30 September 2011

Neighbourhood Support New Zealand was contracted by Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice (Ministry of Justice) to manage a contestable funds process for 2011-12. To date $134.415.23 has been granted to affiliated groups across the country.

A balance of $97,000 remains and we wish to continue inviting expressions of interest and the submission of applications for the funds still available.

The Neighbourhood Support Contestable Funding sub-committee will meet to assess and approve applications at scheduled board meetings (or specially sit if required). The cut-off date for applications for the next scheduled meeting is 5pm on Friday 14th October, 2011 (either by email or hard copy) and addressed to the Secretariat.

Contestable Funding is to assist Neighbourhood Support Area Coordinators and affiliates across New Zealand deliver the following objectives:

  • Empower communities e.g. Emergency Preparedness projects
  • Reduce crime
  • Reduce fear of crime
  • Increase safety and/or perception of safety in the community
  • Help address existing and emerging community needs and issues

You can apply if you are:

  • An established Neighbourhood Support area
  • A Neighbourhood Support affiliate area operation e.g. local council or regional authority who is affiliated or working towards affiliation to Neighbourhood Support New Zealand and are making an equal contribution
  • A new area or an area with potential that displays an aptitude and ability to manage a Neighbourhood Support project.

(Affiliation to Neighbourhood Support New Zealand will be required under all circumstances.) Applicants will need to reflect the Neighbourhood Support New Zealand guidelines within their applications.

For a copy of the funding criteria and the application form or Expression of Interest form please contact Supriya Rathod, NSNZ Secretariat via email or call 021 135 4976.
