FUNDING FOR THE FUTURE

Community Grants

Twice a year we invite you to tell us about your latest project and apply for funding to help make it happen.

We give away $600,000+ every year to support groups and clubs just like yours.

Our grants rounds in 2020 happened in March and September and are now closed. We will keep you posted on dates for 2021.

Other grants

In addition to the bi-annual community grants round we also financially support large scale initiatives that clearly benefit a large number of people in the Hutt/Mana region.

For example, we recently provided $200,000 over two years for the new Ricoh Sports Centre at Fraser Park Sportsville in Lower Hutt.

We are also providing $200,000 over two years for extensions to Expressions in Upper Hutt.

Contact us today if you think your large project fits into this category. We look forward to discussing this with you.
