Call for Applications - Council Discretionary Grants Fund

KDC Logo H High

The Annual Council Discretionary Grants Fund was launched by Council on 1 July 2022. It is intended that the fund will provide a more structured opportunity for not-for-profit community groups to seek Council funding, rather than requests as part of the Annual Plan & Long Term Plan processes.  It is open to any not-for-profit organisation that can demonstrate a benefit to the Kaikōura District.  

2023-24 Applications

OPEN NOW: The 2023-24 funding year is open now for applications and will be distributing funds of $100,000.


Outlined below is a guide for applicants and an application form.  Please ensure you meet all the criteria before applying.

The Discretionary Fund is managed independently by the Mayor & Councillors. Please email if you have questions about this fund.

For information on other community grants managed by Kaikōura District Council please see our Community Grants Webpage.  You can also search the Generosity Funding Database free if you are a KDC Library member.
