Board funding

The Community Boards and Ward Advisory Board have money available for grants to non-profit community-based organisations, registered charities or incorporated societies.

There will be no board meetings in October and so no grants will be considered in October.

Applications received at least three weeks before the Board's meeting, otherwise it will not be considered until the Board's following meeting which in some cases could be a few months.

Please take time to read when the Boards consider applications to make sure applications are received in time - see the Meetings calendar page for meeting dates.

  • The Woodend-Sefton and Kaiapoi-Tuahiwi Community Boards consider grant applications each month.
  • The Rangiora-Ashley Community Board considers grant applications every second month: September 2016, November 2016, February 2017, April 2017, June 2017
  • The Oxford-Ohoka Community Board considers grant applications every second month: September 2016, November 2016, February 2017, April 2017, June 2017

Grant criteria can be found in the application forms.
