How do we become a Community-led Development Programme partner?

The Community-led Development Programme is currently at capacity and we do not envisage that we will enter into any further partnerships within the next year. Communities are welcome to continue to express their interest in the programme, particularly as this decision will be reviewed on a quarterly basis.  Communities and hapū interested in expressing their interest as programme partners should contact the local office or email otagodiafunding@dia.govt.nz with an expression of interest.  

To be considered, your community or hapū will already have or be developing a shared vision and way of working that involves all the community or hapū and a genuine commitment to the community-led development principles.

We plan to have up to sixteen communities and hapū as Community-Led Development Programme partners at any one time. Programme partners will be selected based on programme capacity and the interest in these partnership opportunities.
