Events Sponsorship Scheme Round Two Open October 13, 2021 Listen Our Event Sponsorship Scheme is now open... This is a Council fund intended to support events in the district that help to develop community cohesion and reinforce economic growth. Applications are open to groups (not individuals) whose events take place within the Rangitīkei, and that are not funded by the Rangitīkei District Council ratepayers through other means. There are two funding rounds per year. Round Two is now open and closes 6 March 2022. Funding for the Events Sponsorship Scheme has been increased from $25,000 to $50,000. For more information visit Events Sponsorship Scheme. This fund is awarded by the Finance/Performance Committee.
