Kākano fund

About the Kākano Fund

The Kākano Fund has $70,000 to give out to projects in Hutt City per year. Funding decisions are made by Council officers, with decisions made within 10 days of the fund closing for the month.

We bring all successful recipients of the Kākano fund together at a specified date so that you can report on the results of your idea in person to us and to your peers.

Community Funding Plan 2021-2031 (PDF 2.4MB)

We fund projects and activities that:

  • use collaborative approaches
  • are from well managed organisations
  • use innovative approaches
  • have community ownership
  • for new initiatives, never been done before by your organisation.

How to apply

Note: before you get started we recommend you get in contact with the Funding Advisor to check whether your new initiative or project would fit within this fund.

The fund closes on the 20th of each month. The fund will be open all year until it is fully allocated.

You will need to provide quotes to support your request and meet with a funding officer to discuss your application.
