Grants Open Now

COVID-19 Update

Like all New Zealanders we are waiting to see how the COVID-19 situation unfolds over the coming weeks and months in our communities.

We wish to advise you that there are currently no changes to our application and granting process, and our team are continuing working to support the application process. However, we encourage you to reach out to us if you are encountering issues with your application process or approved grant purpose due to COVID-19 implications.

Due to the Level 4 Alert system currently in place, it may mean that application outcomes take slightly longer than anticipated, and grant payments may also be delayed. We will take all steps to ensure our application and granting process remains as accessible and flexible as possible.

Please check back in for more updates as the situation evolves. For now, we look forward to receiving your applications as per the advertised dates.
