Board Funding Opportunities & Grants

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

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

The Boards consider applications at each of their meetings. To make sure applications are received in time - see the Meetings calendar page for meeting dates.

Grants of up to $500 will be considered by each of the Community Boards.

The detailed grant criteria can be found in the application forms.
