Upper Hutt City Council’s events funding round is set to open on Friday 1 June 2018.

UPPER HUTT, Wellington NZ, 25 MAY 2018—Local event organisers are invited to apply for funding support through Council’s annual event funding round. Upper Hutt City Council has a contestable pool of event funding available for supporting a limited number of events in Upper Hutt City each year. The event funding round will be open from Friday 1 June until Saturday 30 June 2018.

The intention of the fund is to support events that will have a significant contribution to the city—articulated through Council’s city vision. Event organisers can apply for a grant of up to $5,000.

Event types can widely vary, from a music festival to a camping experience, or a rugby tournament.

In order for an event to be considered for funding, applications must demonstrate how the event will support Council in achieving its vision—‘Life. Leisure. Live it!’ Considering how the event supports the vision’s 5 strategic priorities: Community; Environment; City center; Economy; and Infrastructure will be key in articulating it’s suitability to receive funding.
