The DOC Community Fund is directed towards practical projects aimed at conserving New Zealand’s indigenous biodiversity.
Projects are focused on:
We get many applications each funding round – funding is not guaranteed by meeting the criteria.
This is split evenly across DOC Operational Regions and one National Category. The Te Urewera region will be included in the funding pool for Central North Island. Approximately $460,000 will be allocated to each region.
Up to $1 million is available for applications from established community conservation hubs. This fund has extra eligibility criteria and a separate application form. This funding is for established hubs to build the capability and capacity of community conservation groups.
These dates may change.
