April 2021, Round 2 Funding decisions
If you applied to the Sustainability Fund before April 2021 then funding decisions are expected on Wednesday 28 July.
Your application has been reviewed by the evaluation panel, been fully explored in a Councillor workshop and will be decided by the Sustainability and Community Resilience Committee meeting on 28 July.
Because the Council dedicated all meetings during May and June to hearing submissions and finalising the 21-31 Long-Term Plan and the Climate Strategy our approval process has been delayed.
We will notify you once the decisions have been made and soon after establish grant funding agreements with the successful applicants.
Thank you for taking the time to apply to this Fund – we look forward to working with you in the future.
Keep up the great work, helping to make Christchurch a great place to live for generations to come.
