Grants Rounds / Dates

Applications for the Grassroots Fund are accepted at any time.


However – if you are applying under the Education pathway of the Grassroots Fund, applications are only accepted in March and August.
For 2019, any Education pathway applications must be submitted to us by Friday 15 March and Friday 16 August 2019.


We aim to provide a decision on your grant application within three months of receiving a completed application.



Expressions of Interest (EOI) for the Community Assets and Facilities Fund will be accepted for consideration in May and November each year. Closing dates are 30 May and 30 November. 

Organisations seeking a grant under this fund are expected to discuss their application with our Community Advisors first, before submitting an application. EOIs and any subsequent applications are presented to the Board for consideration, so we will keep you informed throughout the process on your application.


Please feel free to call us on: 0800 878 720 to talk about your project or application.
