  • Current photo identification for two authorised signatories (Executive Committee or Board Member) in the form of a New Zealand drivers licence (both sides) or a New Zealand passport
  • Funds must be spent and accounted for within six months
  • For funding toward salary/wage contributions, grant recipients now only need to return a signed salary/wage declaration form
  • Funds must be spent from the account in which they are deposited
  • Funds cannot be used to reimburse any employee or member of the Organisation for money spent on the specific purpose approved. This includes payments made by personal credit cards
  • Grant Recipients can use a supplier of their choosing, however the items purchased must be the same specific items listed in their Approval Letter. If the funding is spent on anything other than the approved specific items, a refund will be required
