Grants for wages and salaries may be considered providing that the payment of a wage is necessary to achieve an authorised purpose and will clearly result in the development of the applicant organisation.

Applications for salaries/wages must be supported by an employment contract, job description and a list of key performance indicators. NOTE: Preferably, the employment contract will be signed by the person in the role. However, in circumstances where a person is not yet in the role (e.g. a new or vacant role), NZCT may still award a grant for this purpose, but will generally not pay out the awarded grant until a signed employment contract is provided. Person(s) in the position(s) being applied for must not be a signatory or contact person for the grant application.
