Community Events Support

If you are a not-for-profit community group planning a community event in Hastings, you may be eligible for a grant through Hastings District Council's Community Events Support scheme.

The event must utilise a Council park, ground and/or facility and the organisation applying must be local and non-profit.

Applications for a funding grant can be made at any time of the year.

The grant for service waiver assists with the costs of hiring a Council park, reserve and or Council venue hire fees.

To be eligible:

  • the application must be from a not-for-profit organisation
  • the event for which the grant is sought must benefit significant numbers of Hastings residents
  • the event must be accessible to the wider community
  • only one application per organisation per year will be considered (maximum three years in a row)
  • grants of up to 100 per cent of service costs will be considered, however normally the applicant is expected to contribute a proportion of the costs

You can provide details to support your grant for service waiver request on the Event Notification Form. We may send you a grant for service waiver form if we require more information.
