Calls for Applications

Applications are now closed for Horowhenua District Council’s new Community Support Grant, as well as for the Shannon Community Development Grant and the Creative Communities Scheme Grant.

Community Support Grant 

The Community Support Grant combines funds from six of Council’s regular community grants, which have been suspended for this financial year. 

This new grant aims to support community initiatives that enhance wellbeing and social connectedness in the wake of COVID-19.

The Horowhenua Community Support Grant will be available in four rounds throughout the 2020/2021 financial year or until the fund has been completely allocated, whichever comes first. The fund will be distributed in two monthly cycles as follows:

  • Round 1 opens 1 August 2020 and closes at 5pm on 31 August 2020.
  • Round 2 opens 1 October 2020 and closes at 5pm on 31 October 2020.
  • Round 3 opens 1 December 2020 and closes at 5pm on 31 December 2021.
  • Round 4 opens 1 February 2021 and closes at 5pm on 28 February 2021.
