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 we provide $114,000 in operational funding to these groups so they can continue their good work.

CC provides $114,000 a year to the community and voluntary organisations that look after Napier residents, often in times of great need. If you want to apply for this funding, please click the 'Related documents' button above to download your application form and project guidelines.

Community Services Grant

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 $114,000 this year, 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.

Next Funding Round

April 2020. Opens Monday 13 April. Closes Friday 1 May 2020, 5pm. 
The grant allocation subcommittee convene 7 July to decide on the successful applicants. Funds are available August 2020.

What we look for

Have a look at the organisations that successfully got funding in 2019 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.
