Assessing your application

Our grants advisors will assess your application and contact you where we require further information.

We will assess your application against:

  • local board and regional priorities
  • financial information supplied
  • benefits to the local board area or Auckland region
  • ability of the group or eligible applicant to deliver the activity
  • collaboration or engagement with the community
  • other factors outlined in the local board grants and regional programmes.

Local boards, councillors or assessment panels will make a formal decision at a meeting.

One to two weeks after the meeting has taken place, we will:

  • issue the formal minutes from the meeting
  • notify you, by email, of the decision made on your application.

Our tip

From the time the grant round closes, the time to make a decision on an application is:
  • four to six weeks for quick response grants
  • up to two months for local grants
  • up to three months for regional grants.
