​Open for applications!

Whangarei District Council supports community groups for a variety of events, amenities and services through our community funding scheme. 

We want to hear from not-for-profit community organisations who are working to benefit our communities of place, of people and of interest.

If you need support with a project or activity that is helping to create a vibrant, attractive and thriving District, the following Funds now open may assist you.

Creative Communities Scheme

This Scheme supports local community groups in creating opportunities for access and participation in arts activities in all its forms. We administer this Scheme on behalf of Creative New Zealand. For grants up to $10,000. Closes 20 February 2020, with decisions advised end March.

Community Fund

This Fund is available for a wide variety of projects and events including festivals, workshops, working bees, facility improvements, and minor capital purchases. For grants up to $10,000. Closes 2 March 2020 with decisions advised mid-April.
