Mahi 6 | Step 6: 

Ka tae atu he kōrero ki ngā kaitono katoa

All Applicants are notified

The Board of Te Mātāwai make all investment decisions. All kaitono will be notified via Te Mātāpuna after the decision-making process to let you know of the outcome of your application.

What happens after my application is successful?

Once an application is approved an Investment Advisor will work with you and will go through the next phase:
• Letter of offer
• Funding Agreement process (what will you report on and when)

Prior to the funding agreement being accepted there may be conditions that need to be met. These will be discussed with you so that you understand what must be completed and the timing to do this. Te Mātāwai will then advise you when the condition has been met.

What will a funding agreement set out?

When you receive Te Mātāuru funding, you will be asked to submit milestone report(s) on the initiatives outcomes from the date you receive funding and we keep in touch throughout your journey and can assist as needed.
