The Westview Special Fund Committee invites funding applications for projects that benefit the Darfield community.

Projects should be of social, economic, cultural, or environmental benefit to people within the Darfield township water supply boundary. Individuals or organisations may apply. Applications will be accepted from people living outside the Darfield township area, as long as the projects are of benefit to the people of Darfield.

Applications received will be assessed by the Committee, with the assistance of Council staff. Projects will be prioritised and costed and the Committee will consider input from the wider community before final funding decisions are made.

The Westview Special Fund Committee is a committee of Selwyn District Council. It was established to administer a fund of $1.27 million, acquired through the sale of land in Darfield.

Applications close on 30 April 2021. Successful projects will be announced in news media by 28 May 2021.
