Hearing & Visual Impairment Fund
The Hearing & Visual Impairment Fund has been established to help Taranaki people who have a hearing or visual impairment to access equipment or technology that has a transformational impact on their daily life.
- Organisations are invited to nominate individuals from within the fund’s target communities (Taranaki people who have a hearing or visual impairment) to receive funding for one or both of the following:
- Direct costs involved in purchasing or accessing equipment or technology for use by the nominated individual(s).
- Costs associated with the use of equipment or technology (e.g. training, user support) by the nominated individual(s).
- Grants will typically be no greater than $2,000 per nominated individual. Organisations may nominate a maximum of two individuals, unless otherwise advised by Taranaki Foundation.
- Taranaki Foundation will not fund equipment, technology or support that has already been purchased.
- Nominees and nominating organisations agree to allow Taranaki Foundation to publicise their grant, should their application be successful.
- The fund will be open to nominations from Monday 1 August and will close Friday 22 September.
- This period may be extended at Taranaki Foundation’s discretion.
- Nominating organisations and nominees will be notified of the outcome of their request in November 2022. Grants will be distributed by 31 December 2022.
- Grant recipients will be required to report on the use of funds using Taranaki Foundation’s Accountability Report.
