COVID-19: Support for whenua businesses

Supporting you through the COVID-19 Alert Levels is a priority for Te Puni Kōkiri. One way we can support you to manage your farm, horticulture or whenua-related business is to help you access the information you need.

We will be providing you with updates to this page as new information comes to hand, and as we understand how we can best support your needs moving forward.

More on general support for you and your whānau.

Responding to COVID-19 impacts

We have commissioned three reports to support whenua-based businesses with their planning and decision making about the future. These reports examine the current and anticipated impacts of COVID-19 on the Māori economy, and the risks and opportunities ahead for Māori land-based sectors and others.
