What is the Mātauranga Māori Marae Ora Fund?
Mātauranga Māori Marae Ora Fund
This new fund provides $5.7 million over two years to support iwi, hāpū and whānau with projects that protect and revitalise mātauranga and taonga on marae.
It is designed to complement other funding available to marae such as the Oranga Marae programme and the Provincial Growth Fund.
It is anticipated the Mātauranga Māori Marae Ora Fund will open for applications in late January 2021. Further information will be available in the new year.
The Mātauranga Māori Marae Ora Fund has been developed in partnership between Manatū Taonga, Te Tari Taiwhenua and Te Puni Kōkiri. This new fund is part of the wider Mātauranga Māori Te Awe Kōtuku programme announced in Budget 2020. This programme comprises 18 diverse initiatives designed to support iwi, hāpū and whānau and Māori communities to safeguard at-risk mātauranga Māori from the ongoing threat of COVID-19.
