Applications for our Neighbourhood Events grants are now closed. The next round will open September 2020
Neighbourhood event grants of up to $150 are available to local residents and community groups to host small events that help people connect with their communities and strengthen neighbour relationships.
We believe small actions drive big change. So while one community event on its own might not make much of a difference, when local residents get together in parks, community halls etc across the City, we can help build a more connected community.
There are two rounds of grants per year, one in February and the other in October.
