The Community-Led Development Programme (CLDP) replaces the Community Development Scheme (CDS) and comes as a pilot ends on June 30.

"The programme will allow selected communities to identify community aspirations, then partner with the Department of Internal Affairs, other government agencies, local government, private funders, businesses and local iwi to achieve their goals," says Jo Goodhew, the community and voluntary sector minister.

The CLDP budget starts at $1 million in 2016-17, rising to $3.56 million in 2019-20.

During the same period the CDS will be phased out. All funding from the CLDP pilot and the CDS will be combined for the CLDP.
