Is your neighbourhood in need of some environmental love?
Love Your Neighbourhood is all about actively caring for a place you love – anywhere you live, learn or play.
If you’re in the Henderson-Massey, Whau or Waitakere Ranges local board area, we may be able to help you with funding for practical volunteer-driven initiatives like:
- environmental restoration and clean-ups
- community planting or weeding bees
- food growing projects
- installing composting systems
Up to $500 is available to cover your expenses, whether you’re a group of friends, neighbours or workmates. We’ve also supported early childhood education centres, youth groups, sports teams and community organisations.
If you’ve got a bright idea for a project that you’d like to see happen in a place you love, we’d love to hear it – so fill out the quick and easy form below.
WEEKLY FUNDING ROUNDS
Applying is possible all year round. Apart from July and December, applications will be processed at the end of each week, so you’ll hear back within seven days if your funding is approved.
Preference will be given to applicants who are able to support their application with additional volunteer contributions towards the project. When completing the application form below, please give us as much information about your project as you can. We want to make sure your project is adequately funded if your application is successful.
Once your funded project is finished, you will need to fill in and send us an accountability report together with a few photos of your project. We will reimburse the agreed funding once we have received and approved your receipts.
