Community Services Grant

Our city relies heavily on a number of community organisations, many voluntary, that care for Napier community, especially our more vulnerable citizens. Each year we provide operational funding to these groups so they can continue their good work.

Napier City Council provides funding 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, complete your application online or download a our printable form.

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, 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

Opens Tuesday, 27 April 2021 and closes 5pm, Friday 14 May 2021. 
If you are looking to apply, but require a little help with your application, a workshop will be held at the Napier War Memorial Centre on Wednesday, 21 April 2021-2022.

What we look for

Have a look at the organisations that successfully got funding in 2020-21 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. 

Priority is given to groups whose primary purpose:

  • Contributes to achieving community interest
  • Alleviates disadvantage, and / or
  • Provides a specific community service (including social services)

Applicants will need provide evidence of additional costs, increased demand, and/or reduced funding.

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