Grants & Funding
There are a range of grants and funding options for community groups available from key funding providers such as the Hastings District Council and Creative Communities New Zealand.
Hastings District Council provides various types of community grants to support and encourage voluntary groups and community based organisations to address their issues, activities or programmes in Hastings District.
Community groups can apply to the Hastings District Council for Funding or a Creative Communities Grant. These grants are contestable so the success of your application would depend on the criteria, priority of the respective grant compared with the others, and the grants money available for allocation.
The Grants and Funding are available to community and voluntary organisations who support and enhance the community through the services they provide Hastings District residents, often in their time of need. This fund supports those organisation's so they can meet current and future community needs, innovate and/or continue to provide services that benefit the Hastings District communities.
Creative Communities Grant is available for projects or events that encourage participation in arts and culture within the Hastings District.
