Community Wellbeing and Hauora Grants

Applications to the Community Wellbeing and Hauora Grants have now closed. These grants are made possible via Mental Health and Wellbeing funding allocated by Government following the North Island Weather Events.

We had significant interest from communities across Hawke’s Bay who have been impacted by Cyclone Gabrielle. We look forward to letting you know early in the New Year of the proposals that received grant funding to support the health and wellbeing of those directly impacted by Cyclone Gabrielle as they adapt to changes in their lives and navigate next steps in the recovery process.
