Ten Year Plans Community Grants

What is a Ten Year Plan?

Every three years the Council must adopt a Ten Year Plan and in the years between Council adopts Annual Plans. This is the blueprint for investment in the district's infrastructure and services over the next ten years.

The plan affects every single person in our district and is prepared in consultation with our residents and ratepayers, outlining a proposed work plan and how we propose to fund it. Consultation is undertaken in line with the requirements of the Local Government Act 2002 and wider engagement on key topics aim to ensure everyone gets to know what's being considered, what the options are, and how they can have their say. 

Ten Year Plans

Community Grants

Applications for longer term funding (up to three years) can be made through the draft Ten Year Plan submission process.  The next Ten Year Plan consultation takes place in 2024.

The majority of community grants funding is committed in the Ten Year Plan, with a small community grants fund available as part of the Annual Plan process. This is for one-off community projects or operational costs for the financial year. The next Annual Plan 2022-2023 consultation starts on 21 March 2022 and is open for submissions until 5.00pm Monday 25 April. There will be another annual community funding round held in 2023.

Grant recipients approved as part of the Ten Year Plan 2021-2031 consultation can be found here: https://www.qldc.govt.nz/community/community-funding
