Community Grants Policy

Maungakiekie-Tamaki Local Board notification: Community Grants Policy


The draft Community Grants Policy is currently out for consultation.

The policy will guide the allocation of council funding to groups and organisations involved in the delivery of projects, activities and services that benefit Aucklanders. It covers grants for arts and culture, community development, environment and heritage, events, and sports and recreation.

The policy aims to make the community grants programme simpler, fairer and more accessible to applicants.
Once the policy is adopted, the new programme will replace all existing community funding schemes.

You can provide your feedback using the online form, alternatively, the summary and a reference copy of the full policy document are also available to read at public libraries, local board offices, community centres and service centres.

Feedback on the Community Grants Policy closes at 5pm on Monday 11 August.
