Apply now for the Tiaki Wai fund
Each year, Te Wai Māori Trust provides the Tiaki Wai fund to support iwi, hapū, and whānau to fulfil aspirations for freshwater fisheries in their rohe.
Established in 2019, Tiaki Wai aims to promote and advance Māori interests in freshwater fisheries. This includes promoting and sharing indigenous fisheries’ expertise, knowledge and understanding, increasing the quality and range of information to iwi and hapū on freshwater fisheries, and enhancing the health and wellbeing of the indigenous fisheries and their environment.
Projects can be awarded up to $5,000 with applications open all year until the fund is fully allocated. To view some of the previous projects made possible through the Tiaki Wai Fund click here.
