Enhanced Access Fund opening in April
The New Zealand Walking Access Commission will again seek applications from a contestable fund for groups undertaking projects to enhance access to our country's great outdoors.
The Commission's Enhanced Access Fund has provided support to over 60 community groups and organisations and funding will once again be offered in 2014.
Commission Chief Executive Mark Neeson says the process has been changed to make it more flexible for community groups. Grants will be available on a quarterly basis this year, rather than through an annual funding round as has been the norm in previous years. The first funding round will open for applications in April, he said.
â€œIn 2014 funding will once again be prioritised towards projects that secure certain and enduring access to the outdoors. By offering funding in quarterly instalments, we will provide opportunities for groups that wish to begin projects later in the year, as well as those that want to begin immediately.â€
