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 almost $100,000 in operational funding to these groups so they can continue their good work.
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 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.

You'll need to print off the CSG Application Form 2019-20 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.
