Grants & Funding
There are a range of grants and funding options for community groups available from key funding providers such as Eastern & Central Community Trust, Department of Internal Affairs, community and public trusts etc.
There are various forms of community grants to support and encourage voluntary groups and community based organisations to address their issues, activities or programmes in Central Hawke's Bay
Community groups can apply for Council Funding via the Community Voluntary Organisation Support Funding and the Community Pride and Vibrancy Fund. Council also administers the Creative Communities Grant on behalf of Creative Communities NZ and the Rural Travel Fund on behalf of SportNZ. 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.
