Community grants

Council manages a range of grants available to community groups and, in some cases, individuals, all with specific criteria designed to enhance the lives of residents through events, programmes, services, and facility improvements.

All of the grants are contestable so the success of your application will depend on how well your project fits with the criteria, the priority of the type of project compared with the others, and the grants money available for allocation.

Contestable Grants funds are for the establishment or development of community projects. Applicants to this fund must show how their project fits with Council’s priorities.

Creative Communities grants are available for arts projects. The funds are supplied by Creative New Zealand, with the application and assessment process managed in each area by the local council. Applicants to this fund must show how their project fits with criteria set by the Creative Communities Scheme and Hastings District Council.

Grant For Service Waiver funds are available to not-for-profit groups holding community events on a Council park or in a Council facility which align with Council’s eligibility criteria. The funds can assist with park or facility hire, and/or the supply of rubbish and recycling bins.

The Rural Halls Maintenance Fund assists rural communities with the maintenance, upgrading, and strengthening of private and Council-owned halls for the benefit of the rural community, with applications measured against set priorities.

The Marae Development Fund assists with marae preservation and development, with projects assessed against eligibility criteria set out in Hastings District Council’s Marae Development Fund Policy.
