The new fund name is Oranga Marae and the purpose of this fund is to contribute to the physical and cultural revitalisation of marae as centres of Māori identity and mātauranga.

Oranga Marae will enable marae to access funding from both Te Puni Kōkiri and Lottery sources through one process. Marae will be supported through the new process with engagement from regional advisors.
