Economic Impact Fund
The purpose of the Impact Fund is to provide financial assistance, by way of grant, seeding finance or loan, to events (sports, recreational, cultural, arts and entertainment), business development initiatives and conference initiatives that benefit the Wanganui District economically.
The Impact Fund has traditionally attracted applications specifically for events. In 2011/12 we are sought applications for initiatives and projects focused on new economic opportunities with the following core criteria:
- Economic benefit
- Long term viability
- Organiser/founder capability and credibility
- Overall business feasibility
- Ratio of funding support requested as a percentage of overall budget
