Applications welcome for Enhanced Access Fund
Groups undertaking projects to enhance access to the outdoors are encouraged to apply for funding through the New Zealand Walking Access Commission's Enhanced Access Fund.
A total of $63,000 is available across two funding rounds in 2015-2016 to support projects that help secure certain and enduring access for current and future generations.
Commission chief executive Mark Neeson said funding applications were being invited for the first of the two rounds, with round one applications due by 30 September.
â€œSince our first funding round in 2010 the Enhanced Access Fund has provided much needed support to organisations doing outstanding work to develop access opportunities. In many cases these organisations are achieving big things on a small budget and this fund is a means of providing a 'leg-up' to help them deliver lasting outcomes for their communities.â€
