Energy efficiency grants
Grants to help Wellington homes and businesses become more energy efficient:
Compost grant for food gardens or native plant-restoration projects
Grants are available to schools, childhood education facilities and community garden groups to create food gardens or complete native plant-restoration projects. For more details, see: Capital Compost and Garden Products - community grant
Discretionary Grant Fund
The Discretionary Grant Fund is used only in special circumstances to ensure the community and organisations can deliver projects which meet grant criteria and benefit Wellingtonians. Typically, we support projects that miss the cycle of funding rounds (see our funding calendar) or are for projects where planning ahead has not been possible. Organisations supported through this fund must meet Council funding criteria.
Currently, the Discretionary Grant Fund is focussed on Arts and Culture outcomes and priorities. For details of these, see the Arts and Culture Fund. For more information, contact the Senior Advisor, Funding Team.
