Grants and Funding

We provide funds - and also administer external funding - to voluntary groups and community organisations across the city.

There are a range of grants and funding options for community groups available from key funding providers such as the Napier City Council, Eastern & Central Community Trust, Department of Internal Affairs, community and public trusts and gaming trusts. 

Community Grants

Napier City provides two community grants -The Community Services Grant, is a contestable fund, so the quality of your application is important. The Community Development grant is open all year or until the funds are spent. 

  • Community Services Grant is available to not-for-profit community organisations who support and enhance the community through the services they provide Napier residents, often in their time of need. This fund supports those organisation so they can meet current and future community needs, innovate and/or continue to provide services that benefit the Napier community.
  • Community Development Grant supports initiatives that respond to a community need. Each year we provide $74,200 to community organisations, big and small, that are helping to make Napier the best city in New Zealand to live, to work, raise a family, and enjoy a safe and satisfying life.  
  • Creative Communities Scheme is available for projects or events that encourage participation in arts and culture within the Napier Community.

Heritage Improvements Grant

The Heritage Improvement Fund was disestablished in mid-2017. Future funding applications are now managed by Art Deco Trust through the Robert McGregor Heritage Fund
