2011 Mā Te Reo Funding Round opens today

Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori announces the opening of the 2011 Mā Te Reo funding round and confirms there will also be another round in 2012.

Mā Te Reo is a community based funding programme established by government in 2001 to support projects, programmes and activites that contribute to local level Māori language regeneration.

The fund is administered on behalf of government by Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori, who distributes $1.8 million annually in the form of conditional grants to iwi, hapū, whānau, Māori organisations and individuals.

The 2011 funding round opens on Monday 29 August 2011, and closes Friday 7 October 2011 at 5pm. Applications to the fund are made online. While we encourage you to apply on-line, you can also submit an application in hard-copy.

"Because this funding pool is aimed at community and whānau based groups, many of the initiatives created as a result of this support contribute directly towards the intergenerational transmission of the language, which is an important aspect of te reo Māori revitalisation. We hope to support many more locally led projects in this year’s funding round“, says Glenis Philip-Barbara, Chief Executive of Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori.

"We encourage iwi, hapū and other community providers to collaborate and work together in the development of their applications. This will ensure strategic and targeted distribution of funding across regions“.
