All Applicants are notified

Before you make an application to Te Mātāuru, you must be able to demonstrate alignment through what you are proposing to deliver with your Cluster’s investment plan.
The Investment plan provides the priorities and what you will need to demonstrate.

• Scope the project.
• Create your budget.

What do I need to prepare to make an application?

For each application we need to know:
• What you want to do and who will benefit: tell us about them, who they are
• Who will be involved
• When it will happen
• What the outcomes will be – these are the outcomes we’ll ask you to report back on once the project is completed – i.e. what do you hope to see and how will you know your initiative has been successful
• A realistic budget: including income, costs and what you are seeking from Te Mātāwai
• How will you run the project and what are the risks and issues
• All proposals from $100,000 (over $99,999) must provide a full business case

What cannot be funded?

How much can I apply for?

Applications will vary and depend on the initiative you have in mind.  While there is no limit to how much you can apply for, you must be able to demonstrate value for money and what evidence/support you have based on the size of your project. If your project is large and complex, then you will need to provide information consistent with a business case.
