Funding calendar

Application closing dates for Council funding and project start dates.

You can submit your application at any time before the closing date of the funding pool.

The deadline for online applications to the Wellington Funding website is 12 midnight of the application closing date.

When you apply for funding, it's important to be clear about your project start and end dates. Projects should be completed within the time frame of the funding pool.

Earliest project start date

You can start your project before you've received confirmation that your grant has been approved. You will, however, only be able to claim project costs from the funding notification / decision date (see the calendar below for details).

If your project needs to start before the funding notification / decision date, contact our funding team advisor.

Project end date

Projects must be completed within the time frame of the funding pool.

Closing dates and grant values are subject to change.
