Tāmaki community grant

The Community Liaison Committee (CLC) consists of key leaders in Tāmaki who collaborate with TRC to shape the organization's services and programs in a way that aligns with the needs and aspirations of Tāmaki.

In 2022, the CLC and TRC joined forces to create a fair and equitable grants process that would be driven by and for the community. Throughout this process, the CLC identified the following priority areas:

  • Te Taiao: Restoring and improving the natural ecology of Tāmaki.
  • Social Innovation: Empowering Tāmaki potential through entrepreneurial social initiatives.
  • Opportunities for whānau: Creating social and economic pathways for Tāmaki whānau to thrive and achieve success.

How will you contact us if more information is required?

Are there conditions attached to grants?

Yes, a reporting template will be sent to all successful applicants. Funded applications will only need to supply outcomes and insights if they are explicitly recorded on the reporting template.

Do we need to keep receipts for goods and services purchased?

No. You will only need to provide evidence for outcome delivery, such as photos and feedback from attendees or staff.

How and when will the grant be paid?

Grants will be paid via direct deposit to the organisation’s or individual’s bank account within an agreed timeframe. We may ask for accreditation, your organisation’s constitution, or other supporting documents to verify delivery and funds.

How will my applications be reviewed?

All applications go through an initial screen test by TRC staff which will blind the applications (where possible) before being reviewed further. Blinding is a process in which applications will be deidentified so that the selection process can occur more fairly. Following this, blinded applications are analysed by the CLC Grant Committee (a CLC subcommittee) to decide the successful applications.
