Our funding streams

Ngā kete pūtea has three funding streams: He Kākano, He Tupu and He Puāwai. Each funding stream will support projects that innovate, deliver, collaborate and expand services or projects in the Trust’s catchment area. We are looking to support projects that can demonstrate that they are culturally responsive in the way they engage with the community, the development of their programmes and in their systems and management.

Our funding streams are seamless, an application in one year may plant the seed for funding from another stream in a subsequent year.
