Central Plains Water Environmental Management Fund was established to mitigate and enhance the Selwyn Te Waihora catchment. The key driver for the Scheme is to support sustainable growth and to protect water quality, including switching from groundwater abstraction to low nutrient alpine-sourced water. This CPWT fund is focused on enhancing the natural environment within the catchment and has funded several projects over the last two years.
The 2018 funding period has not formally opened but if you would like to submit an application for this funding round, please submit this to the EMF Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Formal applications will be welcomed from 1 August and will close on 31 August 2018.
In 2017, there were four successful applicants for this fund and we look forward to support these projects over the coming year as they are implemented. One of our 2016 and 2019 funding recipients, Te Ara Kakariki, are using CPW funding for plant out days, school education days and for the maintenance of established planting sites enrolled in their Greendot Programme – see www.kakariki.org.nz for more information and how you can become involved.
