Three Dunedin city councillors will help oversee the way a new funding programme is distributed to Maori and Pasifika.
At a community and culture meeting yesterday, it was confirmed Crs Carmen Houlahan and Jules Radich will represent the council on the Hapori Maori Innovation and Development funding panel, and Cr Marie Laufiso will be the representative on the Pasifika Communities Innovation and Development Fund.
The Hapori fund will offer $120,000 — $60,000 from the council’s Covid-19 fund matched by the Otago Community Trust — and the Pasifika fund will offer $60,000, half covered by the council and the other half by the Otago Community Trust.
The panels’ full membership is expected to be decided next month; fund applications open from early November and will be allocated in mid-December.
