Emergency Fund for Community Organisations
Nelson City Council established an Emergency Fund to ensure that community organisations involved in the city’s response to COVID-19 are supported to maintain their existing and continuing services for the benefit of the Nelson community.
Who can apply
Local not-for-profit organisations that provide services in Nelson and face financial hardship due to the Covid19 pandemic, such as through:
- A reduction in income received (e.g. unable to run scheduled fundraising activities)
- Increased costs to maintain services or respond to increased demand during the pandemic.
Funding available: $200,000
Applications are now open: For more information about the fund, and to apply, visit Shape Nelson
