What support does the Department of Internal Affairs offer in the Community-led Development Programme?
In this partnership the Department will offer intensive advice and support and will work with other government agencies, tangata whenua, local authorities, funders, businesses and local organisations to support the community achieve their locally-led initiatives. As partnership communities put their plans in place, they will also be able to request funding investment to support them to achieve their community or hapū goals.
The first programme partners were selected in March 2017 and a second group of communities are currently exploring if a community-led partnership could be right for them. Requests to join this programme are now closed for 2017.
