June 2020 Update
Tēna koutou katoa,
At our most recent trustee meeting, trustees met with Graeme O'rouke (Bay of Plenty Regional Council), and discussed issues around the lakes and the effect of lake levels on the wetland. We will continue to work our relationship with BOPRC and other stakeholder as part of our investigative work around addressing issues that affect our lease holders on Tamatea Street.
The trust received a total of 101 tertiary education grants for the 2020 round. Of these, 80 applications were processed, while the 20 remaining applications were not processed due to issues with the applications such as, 'not an owner', or 'previously input into the website resulting in a double entry', and/or were 'incomplete'. This is comparable to 2019 applications where we had 103 applications with 80 being funded. The value of all grants for 2020 approximated $24 000 in total.

The trust has asked the organisers of this initiative to provide a formal report on the process so that leanings can be taken from it and worked on for future initiatives. The initiative was such a powerful response to unprecedented events that it was thought a formal review would be invaluable.
The trusts distribution policies can be viewed and cover the areas of Cultural, Social, Education, and Economic Development. Please do check them out and if you have any questions, please approach the trust secretary Martin Kinder.
