Karamea Community Incorporated (KCI) is applying for funding to support its activities in its dual roles of fundholder and leadership group for the Community Led Development Programme (CDLP) partnership between the Karamea Community and the Department of Internal Affairs (DIA).
Since being appointed fundholder for the Karamea CDLP Partnership with DIA, KCI's administration budget requirements have grown, with requirements of more involved fund management and in-depth monitoring through financial review processes.
KCI is reliant on outside funding to ensure these requirements, along with other routine administrative costs can be met.
How does this relate to our community plan?
KCI and the Karamea CDLP Committee have overseen the initiation and ongoing development of the community plan.
Continuity of the organisation overseeing community-led development on the ground in Karamea is of paramount importance to ensuring the continued success of the programme.
If KCI were unable to secure funding, it simply wouldn't be able to execute its role in the community.

Where will the benefit of this grant request be realised?
Karamea and Little Wanganui
What are the expected benefits/outcomes?
The ability to ensure continuity of quality financial management and monitoring and making sure that KCI members are adequately resourced to perform their duties. We expect KCI to be able to improve cooperation and communications with the community, and succeed in building on foundations laid in the first two years of our partnership with the DIA.
