Community Grants

The 2019 Community Grants Funding Scheme is now closed and will be open again for applications from 1 June – 31st July 2020.

Community grant applications are open to any not-for-profit group servicing Upper Hutt residents.

Groups can apply under the following categories:

  • Local Grants
    For groups based in the Upper Hutt area and primarily servicing Upper Hutt residents
  • Regional Grants
    For groups situated outside of Upper Hutt but provide a service to Upper Hutt residents

 The three priority areas for funding are:

  • A strong need for the service, programme or event and wide community benefit
  • Substantial volunteer involvement and self help
  • Projects which promote a sense of community and contribute to community well-being
