Calls for Applications

1. International Representation Grant

Applications may be made on an ongoing basis throughout the year (1 July to 30 June) but must be applied for at least one month prior to the event taking place.

Find out more on our International Representation Grant page.

2. Horowhenua Events Grant

The Horowhenua Events Grant was created to address the growing need to support grass-roots community activities.

Applications may be made on an ongoing basis throughout the year (1 July to 30 June) but must be applied for at least one month prior to the event taking place (no retrospective funding). In addition, as there is a very limited funding pool available for this grant ($5,000 in total), once all the funds for a financial year have been awarded to the community, there will be no more awarded until the beginning of a new financial period.
