Hamilton City Council Single-year Grant supports not-for-profit community organisations that support small community led projects that are aligned with Council plans and strategies and contribute to the social wellbeing of the city by delivering community wide services.  

The word 'community' is used in its broadest sense: it signals that our single-year grants programme will support the social, cultural, arts and environmental wellbeing of Hamilton people and neighbourhoods.

Funding consideration will be given to community organisations which:

  • Encourage and support community-led initiatives
  • Strengthen participation across diverse communities
  • Inspire communities to take pride and ownership in Hamilton

Single-year Grants will fund organisations for:

  • Operating and administrative costs
  • Equipment and resources that support the project or organisation
  • Programme development and implementation​​

The Single-year Grant is an annual contestable fund of at least $292,000.  The fund opens in February of each year for events and projects taking place within the next financial year starting 1 July.​
