More Information
The Moving the Māori Nation contestable fund is for initiatives that support individuals, whānau and community organisations delivering healthy lifestyles at a ‘grassroots level’; and for successful community healthy lifestyle programmes that can be replicated in other communities and regions across the motu to benefit whānau.

There are two pools of funding up to $10,000 for small or local initiatives; and over $10,000 for projects that have a broad community or national reach.

There is no closing date meaning applications can be received throughout the year.
