The Community Investment Funding Panel

Help Nelson’s most vulnerable by joining the Community Investment Funding panel.

A chance to help our community by assisting socially-minded organisations and projects has opened up as Te Kaunihera o Whakatū Nelson City Council seeks nominations for its Community Investment Funding panel.

Four community representatives are sought for the panel, which meets up to four times a year to make decisions on funding applications that meet specific community outcomes, such as reducing social isolation, poverty and housing vulnerability and improving access to work and learning opportunities. Learn more on the Our Nelson website.
