Te Mana o te Awa & Te Mana o te Iwi Grants
These funds are designed to advance and support initiatives, projects and uri that contribute to the health and wellbeing of Te Awa Tupua. Historically these funds have been known as Manga Iti & Rongoroa.
Te Mana o te Awa and Te Mana o te Iwi funds are focused on supporting the priorities of Te Rautaki o Te Whawhaki. These kaupapa may create opportunities to explore larger, long-term projects that benefit Te Awa Tupua and Whanganui Iwi.
The overall aim of the funding is to grow the capability and capacity of our people to enhance the health and well-being of Te Awa Tupua.
We welcome applications that align to the priority areas of the fund:
