Forty-two community groups and organisations have been successful in the latest round of Henderson-Massey Local and Multiboard grant allocations. The grants aim to empower and strengthen the local community.
Twenty-three organisations were awarded local grants, with nineteen community groups awarded Multiboard grants.
Henderson-Massey Local Board Chair Chris Carter is pleased to have the opportunity to assist the community groups.
“There are so many amazing groups doing remarkable mahi in our area.
“We're thrilled to provide grants to support our community groups in need. While we couldn't fulfil every funding request in full, this support will play a vital role in sustaining the invaluable community work we cherish.
“We understand that for some community organisations, this funding can be make-or-break. Given the current circumstances, we're committed to doing our best in helping them make West Auckland a better place to live," says Chair Carter.
The board awarded $66,268 in local grants, with each group receiving a grant ranging from $1500 to $5000.
Among the successful recipients are the Waitākere Ethnic Board, an Incorporated Society that advocates for ethnic communities in Waitākere, and the Lake Pano Project, an organisation dedicated to preserving our lake and creating a vibrant community space.
The board also awarded $31,000 in multiboard grants. These grants encompass a range of initiatives and projects in arts, culture, sports, recreation, and more, benefiting the entire area.
Multiboard grants are for projects or activities that are either held, or have participants, in three or more local board areas.
