Creative Communities Scheme (CCS)

Creative Communities Scheme

In addition to our Community Funding programme, we also administer the Creative Communities Scheme (CCS) for the Whangārei District on behalf of Creative New Zealand.

The Creative Communities Scheme has its own criteria and grants are allocated by an independent committee of community representatives.

Creative Communities Scheme supports local community groups and individuals creating opportunities for access and participation in arts activities in all its forms.

Amount: The maximum amount applicants can apply for is $10,000.

Closing date:  This fund is closed. We are making some changes to our funding, so check back in June 2024 for new funding dates.
