This funding programme is to protect the natural integrity of Māori land and preserve mātauranga Māori.

Ngā Whenua Rāhui offers two funds:

  • The Ngā Whenua Rāhui Fund provides protection for Māori landowners through 25 year renewable kawenata. Applications are open from 1 March to 31 May each year.
  • The Mātauranga Kura Taiao Fund seeks to preserve the customs, history and stories associated with whenua Māori and tikanga. Applications to this fund are open all year round – subject to change.
