Grants & Funding

​Funding is often a struggle for community groups, but in most cases it comes down to knowing who to approach and how.

Council manages two grant schemes one being the Community Development Grants and the other being the Creative Communities Scheme funded by Creative NZ but administered by the Council.​

Council also administers th​e South Waikato Environmental Initiatives Fund that grants $30,000 each year to sustainably environmental project​s around the district.  This funding is available to private farmers, community groups and schools.

PLEASE NOTE: For both grant schemes, applications will not be considered where the project/activity is in retrospect (already occurred) prior to allocation of funds.
