Hamilton City Council’s Single-Year Community Grants application period opens today (1 February).
The annual grant fund is $308,000, with grants capped at $8000 per application.
The Single-Year Community Grants will fund organisations for operating and administrative costs, development and implementation of community focussed programmes, and equipment or resources to help organisations in their work across the city and in our communities.
In assessing grant applications, the panel gives priority to the number of volunteer hours and in-kind donations contributed to an organisation. Preference will be given to organisations with an annual total income less than $500,000.
Staff involved in the Council’s administration of grant funding will host two information sessions on Saturday 2 February (9.30am) and Tuesday 19 February (5.30pm), both in the Kathleen Glenn Room, in the Central Library in Garden Place.
Applicants seeking further guidance on the Single-Year Community Grants can email the Council’s Community Funding Advisor, Sandra Larsen – firstname.lastname@example.org
