The Ngā Whenua Rāhui funding programme offers two funds to protect the natural integrity of Māori land and preserve mātauranga Māori.
  • The Ngā Whenua Rāhui Fund provides protection for Māori landowners through 25 year renewable kawenata. The fund is currently oversubscribed and not receiving new applications.

  • The Mātauranga Kura Taiao Fund seeks to preserve the customs, history and stories associated with whenua Māori and tikanga. Applications will be accepted from 1 March.
