Dunedin community groups and organisations are invited to apply for funding to use Forsyth Barr Stadium.

Each year the company that runs the stadium has to allocate $750,000 in funding for community use.

That's part of its agreement with the Dunedin City Council.

The money covers the cost of using the stadium for non-profit groups and charities.

It's for events which encourage community use of the facility, resources and equipment.

Funding is now available for events in the second half of this year.

A second funding round, for next year's events, will open in September.
