Applications are now open and will close May 1st
All applications must be done via the online grants portal.
Hastings District Council encourages local community groups and organisations to work with Council towards meeting the current and future needs of our community. If your organisation is delivering projects or services that fit with one or more the priorities set out below, we invite you to apply to our annual Single Year Community Grant.
Each year Council contributes funds to a diverse range of groups delivering community services or projects across the district. Organisations are able to apply for up to $20,000 per year. For larger projects its unlikely Council will provide the total amount of funding required so groups will need to show how that can attract funding from other agencies and charities outside of Council or have the ability to put in significant amount of money into the project themselves. Council is looking for new and innovation ways to help support the current and future needs of our communities
To be eligible for funding groups need to show how their project fits with one or more of the priorities below
