Community Grants

The Community Grants Funding Scheme are administered once per year and are open next 1 June – 31st July 2019.

Community grants are administered to any not-for-profit group that services Upper Hutt residents.

Groups can apply under one of the two categories:

  • Community Grants Fund
    For groups that reside in the Upper Hutt area and primarily service Upper Hutt residents
  • Regional Grants
    For groups that are situated outside of Upper Hutt but service a large portion of the Upper Hutt population.

There are three main areas of focus that the funds have:

  • Operation or administration costs for organisations involved in community support.
  • Projects which enhance existing community support programmes.
  • Community driven programmes which contribute to community well-being.

All applications that lie outside of these priorities will be considered after these.

A Community Grants Application Form(PDF, 131KB) can be downloaded here and applications can either be submitted via post or email.
