Whānau, hapū and iwi Māori improving their lives through active participation and healthier lifestyles.
Moving the Māori Nation is a contestable fund to promote Whānau Ora through whakapakari tinana and is aimed at improving the wellbeing of whānau Māori
Minister for Māori Development, Hon Te Ururoa Flavell, launched the Moving the Māori Nation contestable fund on Monday 4 July 2016. Read media release here.
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.
The Application Guidelines and Form are here.
If you, your whānau or a provider of healthy lifestyle activities is looking for ways to improve Māori wellbeing, contact us to find out how the Fund may be able to help.
You can get in touch through any of our regional offices.
