Community Partnerships

HBRC works for and is part of the Hawke’s Bay community. We partner with local organisations and groups to achieve the common goal of ensuring the region grows and prospers, while protecting our clean natural environment.

We maintain a range of partnerships with organisations that contribute to the region’s wellbeing, often working alongside each other.

Many of our partners are involved in the protection and enhancement of Hawke’s Bay’s natural environment. Some partnerships are coordinated by HBRC, such as the Regional Transport Committee, the Ruataniwha Stakeholders Group and Tutira Mangaharuru Forum. In other areas we offer support or participate in groups that align with our goals and vision. Examples are Sport Hawke’s Bay, the Volunteer Coastguard or Te Mata Park Trust.

LEAF - Local Environmental Action Fund

Community groups can get a helping hand on a local project to enhance or protect the environment with the LEAF (Local Environmental Action Fund).

You can apply to the Regional Council for grants of up to $500 to help you get started or progress an existing project that has an environmental benefit for the wider community. Applications are welcome from community groups, schools, individuals, and whanau, iwi or hapu.

You can apply at any time of the year, but you need to secure a LEAF grant before you purchase materials. Please see the application form below to apply and view the the terms and conditions.
