Eligibility and Criteria

Am I eligible to apply?

If you are a registered charity or not-for-profit organisation, a school or a group that is affiliated to a regional or national body you are eligible to apply.

For more detail, please refer to our Authorised Purpose.

Do you have funding in our area?

In general, funds will be distributed in the area in which they were generated. This is typically defined by territorial local authority (TLA) boundaries or in Auckland City by Wards. The NPC may however at their discretion, apply and distribute funds from one TLA/Ward to another, or toward a National project.
