The purpose of this fund is to support Māori landowners to preserve and grow nature. These projects will need to demonstrate strong employment outcomes and make a significant local contribution to indigenous biodiversity.
Projects will need to occur on Māori owned land or land owned by iwi or hapū Treaty settlement entities. Please discuss your proposal with your local Te Papa Atawhai office.
This funding round is currently open.
Much of this funding is already allocated to specific projects and organisations, while other funding is more flexible.
The Jobs for Nature programme helps revitalise communities through nature-based employment and stimulate the economy post COVID-19.
Auckland is at Level 3 and other regions at Level 2.
