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.

An application form can be downloaded here(PDF, 131KB) and applications can either be submitted via post or email.
