Community Investment Fund Guidelines

Nelson City Council has been working in partnership with community organisations for many years through the provision of Community Investment Funding grants and agreements.

This funding allows Council to support the community and local organisations to deliver programmes and activities that meet specific local needs.

Funding allocations are made by the Community Investment Funding (CIF) Panel, which has the delegation to make funding decisions on behalf of the Community Services Committee. The objective of the fund is to deliver social development outcomes, although it does not include funding arts, recreation and events. Learn more about the Community Investment Policy.
