Community Services Grant 

Our city relies heavily on a number of community organisations, many voluntary, that care for Napierites, especially our more vulnerable citizens. Each year, NCC provides almost $100,000 in operational funding to these organisations so they can continue their good work.

Community Services Grant

NCC provides $97,200 a year to the community and voluntary organisations that look after Napier residents, often in times of great need.

What we fund

The Community Services Grant is a contribution from Napier City Council to the community not-for-profit sector that helps look after our residents. This fund, worth $97,200 in 2018, helps these community organisations to provide services which benefit the wider Napier community. Grants typically range from $500 to $2000.

We also offer rates subsidies to groups who own a property that is used to provide community services in Napier. Once again, this grant is only available to not-for-profit groups with legal entity status within Napier City. Family trusts, social clubs and chartered clubs are ineligible.

Funding Round   

- Opens 28 March. Closes 20 April, 5pm.

The Grants Allocation Sub-Committee convene on 7 June to decide the successful applicants. Funds are available from 1 July.

What we look for

Have a look at the organisations that successfully got funding in 2017 in the 'Latest recipients' table below. You'll notice a couple of things at once. First, many of them have a precise focus, providing the expert services to the community that specialists do best. Secondly, you'll see all of them address pressing community needs - they're an integral part of the framework (along with government and local government agencies) that looks after us all. Specifically, we fund groups and organisations that:

  • contribute to achieving community interest
  • alleviate disadvantage and/or,
  • provide a specific community service (including social services).

Priority is given to organisations whose services are 100% targeted to Napier residents.

How to apply

You'll need to print off the CSG Application Form 2018-19 and fill it out. It's worth reading the CSG Guidelines - and then reading them again - as they'll help you make an application that shines.

Once applications close, they will be assessed by Community Funding Advisor and presented to the Grants Allocation Sub-Committee for consideration. They'll then be ratified by NCC councillors at an NCC meeting. All decisions are final and are not subject to review.

Note: If you receive a grant, other than a rates subsidy grant, we'll want to hear how your project or service went. We'll ask you to fill in a 'Report Back' form.
