Hastings District Council

Hastings District - Grants and funding opportunities

Hastings District Council manages a range of grants and funding opportunities which are available to community groups and, in some cases, individuals, all with specific criteria designed to enhance the lives of residents through events, programmes, services, and facility improvements.

All of the grants are contestable so the success of your application will depend on how well your project fits with the criteria, the priorities compared with the others, and the grants money available for allocation. All applications are now submitted and managed via this online Grants Portal

Successful recipients of council grants or funding will receive a Funding Agreement or a Contract for Service. Upon completion of the project the applicant will need to account for how they have spent funds and share what they have achieved and learnt. Accountability and acquittal reports are also submitted and managed by logging onto your account via this online Grants Portal.

More information on Hastings District Council Grants can be found in the Contestable Grants and Funding Framework or by contacting communitygrants@hdc.govt.nz
