Community-owned Masterton Trust Lands Trust has announced an historic annual grants budget of $1.5 million for 2022/23. It coincides with the Trust’s 150th year.
The $1.5 million represents the largest amount of money the Trust has ever made available to the people of Masterton. This includes its usual annual rental support for community tenants and a diverse education grants programme, and the Trust is equally delighted to be able to reinstate community grants.
“My fellow trustees and I are thrilled the Trust has achieved a record-high grants budget to support our community in the year ahead. We look forward to the benefits the boost in funding will provide locally,” said Leanne Southey, Trust chair.
