Funding support

There is funding available for community-led projects that protect, enhance or promote Otago's environment including our ECO Fund and financial support for resource consent processing that meet certain criteria. 


ECO Fund

If you are involved in a community project that protects, enhances or promotes Otago’s environment, then you may also be eligible for funding under Otago Regional Council’s ECO Fund.

Note that the ECO Fund will not pay for the fees associated with resource consents; however, it may be used for other aspects of your project.

Funding for consent fees

A total of up to $50,000 per year is available through the Environmental Enhancement Projects Policy fund to help community and catchment groups with resource consent processing fees along with the compliance and administration costs associated with the granted consent.
