Ministry for the Environment supports NZ Landcare Trust with funding for a number of specific projects. Their Community Environment Fund has now superseded the older Sustainable Management Fund.
The Community Environment Fund (CEF) provides funding to support New Zealanders to take environmental action and ensure that:
- partnerships (relating to practical environmental initiatives) between interested parties are supported and strengthened
- community-based advice and educational opportunities are increased
- awareness on environmental legislation and issues is heightened.
Each year there will be two opportunities/funding rounds to submit an application to the fund.
Details about this fund can be found on the MfE website:
