This programme is designed to help community groups, schools, early childhood centres, and iwi/hapu groups with not-for-profit projects that enhance our region or encourage more people to engage with our natural environment. By providing funding and advice we are able to support the great work these groups do while encouraging more people to think about the ways we interact with our natural environment.

Community grant applications are sought annually and guidelines have been developed to help determine whether your project could be eligible for a grant. Applications are assessed for their environmental benefits, feasibility, community involvement and long-term benefits to the region.

2019 applications have now closed, and will reopen around autumn of 2020. You can find the 2019 eligibility criteria on the right hand side of this page.
