For the year 2011-12, Ministry of Justice contracted Community Patrols of New Zealand to allocate funding to affiliated Community Patrols through a contestable funding process.


Applicants are advised that whilst negotiations are under way, there is no guarantee that CPNZ will be contracted to manage these funds. The application process is commencing in spite of this uncertainty in order to provide maximum benefit should the management of Contestable Funding by CPNZ be renewed in the coming year.

CPNZ accepts no responsibility or liability for applications made under Contestable Funding for the year 2012-13 should the contract with Ministry of Justice not be renewed.

By applying for Contestable Funds at this time and until confirmation of contract renewal is provided, applicants are agreeing to submit applications with the knowledge that funds may not be available at the end of this process and contract negotiation.

Each District Representative Officer have information on previous funding rounds.

Information is also available from the National Office in Wellington.
