For the past two years the Youth Council has been able to offer annual grants for young people aged 13 to 19 who live in Hastings. This year we have 12 $250 youth grants available to support young people in our district.
If you require financial help to succeed in music, sport, arts, education (or anything that will help you achieve your goals) then apply for a Hastings Youth Council youth grant.
Applications for 2018 Youth Grants are now closed.
