Helping you beautify your community


Funding applications open July 2021, watch this space!​

Does your area need a spruce up? Want to care for your local environment? We want to help you lead a successful environmental or beautification project in your community.

That’s why we’re offering grants of up to $1,000 per project towards the cost of locally led projects in South or East Auckland.

Whether it’s a waste clean-up, community mural, native planting or something else - if you want to make a difference in your community, we want to help you make it happen!
