Your Council

Fee for service contracts

As part of Council’s Community Funding Policy, we have a contracting programme to ensure community groups deliver outcomes aligned with Council’s goals.

Contracts have been awarded for the three-year period covering 1 July 2016 to 30 June 2019. You can download the list of the contracted organisations from the bottom of this page.

Applications open for new proposals

In 2017, two contracted organisations advised us they are no longer able to continue. Council will now reallocate the unpaid funding. We are seeking proposals from not-for-profit agencies on how they will deliver against the same outcomes as the original contractors.

Successful organisations will be offered contracts for 13 months, from 1 June this year until 30 June 2019.

How to apply

Applications are open from Monday 12 March and close at 4pm on Monday 16 April.

We'd love to meet you and discuss your proposal. We can give advice on whether this scheme is for you, and answer any questions you may have before you submit your application. Please contact Rebecca Hofmann on 06 351 4100 or email

Apply online using the link below, which will open a page on our SmartyGrants community funding website. Alternatively, you can complete the expression of interest form and we'll get in touch to discuss your options.
