Guide to the CCF Expression of Interest

This guide will assist you in understanding the CommunityCare Fund (CCF) process and also help us to see if you meet the criteria to be advanced to the CommunityCare Fund Shortlist.

We will review your EOI submission to ensure basic CCF funding criteria are met before you will be invited to make a full application for the nearest open funding round.  Because your project might change in the months between submitting an expression of interest and (if invited) submitting your final application, we suggest that you aim to submit your EOI within a month of the EOI closing date.

EOI review periods

Summer round: 31 October

Winter round: 30 April

We will then make contact with you and either invite you to complete the application process or inform you that your EOI did not meet our selection criteria.

Final submissions due

Closing dates for the shortlisted applications are:

Summer round: 31 January

Winter round: 31 July


Things to include in your submission

Q: Is your organisation...

To be considered for the CCF we’d like an idea of who your organisation is and how you fit into your community.  It’s important to us that we are assisting community groups and non-profit organisations.

Q: Total project cost...

How much will it cost to complete your whole project? We like to know if our grant will cover a part of the project or complete the project in its entirety.

Q: Total funding request...

How much money are you asking for from Transpower?

Q: Project classification/category...

We’d like to know how your project fits into the community.  This helps us keep track of where the “touch points of need” are in the community and form a picture of the kind of assistance that is needed across NZ.

Q: Project summary...

A quick snap shot of what you are planning to do.

Q: Benefits of your project to the community.

What kind of great things are going to happen in your community when you complete your project?
