Lottery Hurunui Kaikoura Marlborough Earthquake Relief Fund
This fund makes grants to not-for-profit organisations that are helping people in the Hurunui, Kaikoura or Marlborough districts affected by the 7.8 magnitude earthquake on 14 November 2016.
Only not-for-profit organisations providing earthquake relief activities and services to people in the Hurunui, Kaikoura and Marlborough districts may request grants from this Fund.
Ngā Hua / Outcomes
A subcommittee of the Lottery Canterbury / Kaikoura and Lottery West Coast / Nelson / Marlborough Community committees allocates the Lottery Hurunui Kaikoura Marlborough Earthquake Relief Fund.
Its funding outcomes are that the physical and emotional wellbeing of people living within the affected areas is improved. The community benefits must be of a public rather than a personal nature.
Requests for grants are more likely to be funded if the benefits or outcomes for people in the affected communities, hapū or iwi are clearly shown. This includes requests for capital works grants up to $30,000 for wellbeing, and health and safety.
Ngā kaupapa ka tautokona ā-pūtea / What we fund
If requesting a grant, you need to show:
what you want funding for, including how you intend to use the amount requested to support earthquake relief activities
the immediate community needs you propose to meet
how you will address these needs
what benefits or outcomes will result from your activities or services
how you will know that you’ve achieved these benefits or outcomes
the total amount you are requesting.
Organisations requesting grants need to provide their most recent annual accounts, financial statements or performance report unless this information is already available to us online.
For this Fund only:
organisations that are not legal entities may request grants of more than $10,000
there is no limit to the number of grant requests an organisation can make. (This includes organisations that have received a lottery grant since July 2016, as the usual restriction of only one lottery grant per year does not apply to this fund)
a separate budget is not required. In response to the first question on the request form, organisations need to show how it will use the grant requested.

The subcommittee does not fund:
multi-year grant requests
research, including large scale research plans, feasibility studies for capital projects, and health research
capital works over $30,000, including project management fees

requests that fit the priorities for the Lottery Minister’s Discretionary Fund, which include:
If you have been successful in your grant request the grant will be paid into the bank account matching the details provided at the time of your request. Our goal is to have this payment to you within a fortnight of your grant being approved by the committee.
In using your grant we would ask that you
Remember your grant was made for the community purpose outlined in your request. If things have changed then check in on what you need to do here.
Remember that we will ask you to report or share your story about how the grant helped you to make a difference in your community, hapu or iwi
We also ask that if you have funds remaining or not able to be used for the purpose you requested these need to be returned so we can make a difference across as many community , hapu and iwi as possible
