Good Practice Funding website

(Decommissioned September 2013)

Background

The Good Practice Funding website was created to help implement the Code of Funding Practice and was managed by the Office for the Community and Voluntary Sector.

The Code of Funding Practice helps government funders and non-profit organisations work together when using public funds to benefit communities.  It offers guidance on how to meet the seven core codes and 22 key criteria in different situations. Most parts of the Code apply to all funding arrangements, but require different emphasis to suit the funding purpose and type of funding arrangement used.

The Minister for the Community and Voluntary Sector launched the Code of Funding Practice on 1 October 2010.

The Office for the Community and Voluntary Sector moved from the Ministry of Social Development (MSD) to the Department of Internal Affairs (DIA) on 1 February 2011. The shift followed a State Services Commission review of the institutional and Vote arrangements for the community and voluntary sector, and brought the portfolio together into one Crown agency.

In 2012, much of the content on the Good Practice Funding website was migrated to the Community Matters website http://www.communitymatters.govt.nz/Promoting-good-practice.
