Manawatū Grant Finder

Manawatu Grant Finder website

The Manawatū District Council has joined forces with one of New Zealand and Australia’s most powerful grant search engine, GrantGuru, to deliver a free one-stop-shop grants portal.

How it works

The Funding Finder hand-picks grants and funding opportunities specific to local businesses and community groups, encompassing all government and private sector grants available. It also provides advice and top tips for finding and applying for grants to maximise the chances of receiving funding.

Organisations and individuals can use the search engine to find available grants and filter them by specifying industry and type of project.

Users can also register to receive alerts about funding programs relevant to them as they become available, giving businesses and community groups the opportunity to plan and submit well-prepared funding applications.

GrantGuru is regularly updated with new information and grants. It features all council grants and initiatives. It replaces the Generosity NZ portal which previously was available through the Manawatū District Libraries.

Why we're involved

We wanted to help local businesses and groups to find and apply for grants. There are a lot of great funding opportunities out there, but the process of finding and applying for grants can be daunting and time-consuming and many people don’t know where to start looking.
