The Recovery Projects Fund was identified as an initiative arising from the Napier Recovery Plan. It aims to support a range of projects that will positively influence Napier’s recovery and renewal post Covid-19.
The Fund opens on 1 July 2020. A total of $500,000 is available for distribution and grants may range from under $5,000 to over $30,000. This is not a contestable fund, which means applications will be assessed as they are received until the fund is allocated or within 12-months, whichever comes first.
Funding will be allocated to projects that accelerate recovery of Napier’s community and/or economy and enhance wellbeing, both emerging ideas and longer term strategies. Applications may propose a new way of doing business, a new collaboration, or something that meets a new need. Partnership approaches are encouraged.
Projects must also clearly address an identified issue or provide leverage opportunities for Napier’s recovery. Potential applicants are encouraged to read the Napier Recovery Plan for further information to support their application: Recovery Plan
Applications are encouraged from a range of sectors and from across Napier (including suburban locations).
Funding may only be received by registered legal entities who operate within Napier (excluding family trusts, social clubs and chartered clubs), and whose project is targeted to Napier residents, communities, and/or businesses.
Projects valued under $30,000: applications are invited using the online application form.
Projects valued at $30,000 and over: applications are invited using a two-step process. Step one involves submission of an Expression of Interest. Successful short-listed EOI applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal for consideration
Applicants will be required to submit a project plan appropriate for their proposed project (over $10,000 projects only).
Recipients are required to provide a report about their project (using the report form provided with the approval letter) within one month of the project’s finish date. Larger value projects may be asked to provide interim reporting.
Any funds that are not spent for the approved purpose, must be returned to Council.
All decisions are final and are not subject to review.
