Waste Minimisation & Innovation Fund

Waste Minimisation & Innovation Fund

The Waste Minimisation and Innovation Fund opens for applications on Tuesday 1 September 2015.

The purpose of the fund is to support new ideas and projects that reduce waste going to landfill in the Auckland Region. We have been able to support a wide variety of great projects since 2013, and invite businesses, community groups, iwi/Māori groups and educational organisations to apply for funding of up to $50,000.

The funding round opens on Tuesday 1 September and closes 5pm, Wednesday 30 September 2015.

The Waste Minimisation and Innovation Fund (WMIF) will now only accept online applications. You will be able to access the online application portal SmartyGrants from the Auckland Council website once the WMIF opens for applications on 1 September.

The following workshops will be held in August for those who would like to know more about the fund.
