Wednesday April 15 2020

If you run a community organisation or group in Palmerston North, please fill out our Income Source Assessment Form.

Council is asking community groups to take a survey to help us gauge future support needs.

Covid-19 has had a significant impact on New Zealand's economy the past few months, which means there could be less grant funding available for community groups in the future.

Palmerston North City Council is asking all community groups in the area to fill out our Income Source Assessment Form by 20 April, so we can better support these groups in the coming months. The information from these forms will give Council a better understanding of where groups are currently getting their funding from, and what Council can do to better assist these groups.

This assessment will also ask what you think the next year will look like for your group and if there are any skills or advice you wish you had access to.

Please note, this assessment form is based on your group's income for the year ended 31 March 2020.

Council is committed to supporting the community groups providing services in Palmerston North. Help us, so we can help you.

All responses from this assessment form will be kept completely anonymous.
