What you need to know

To receive funding, there must be a philosophical alignment between Whanau Ora and what you are proposing to deliver. Te Pūtahitanga o Te Waipounamu has utilised whānau voice to develop a way to identify if we are being helpful and creating opportunities for whānau success.

The Whānau Ora Outcomes Framework provides the central foundation by which all whānau aspirations can be measured.

  • Check your initiative idea is a good match for whānau funding priorities
  • Scope the project.
  • Create your budget.

Checklist for a good application

Be realistic about your needs and the costs for which you are seeking funds. If you are successful, we will attempt to make a fair contribution to your project.

Successful applications will have:

  • an expenditure budget
  • realistic costs with a complete overview of finances,
  • information on any other income streams, identify all other resources of income
    (including any other funders)

Important details in your project description

For each application we need to know:

  • What you want to do
  • Who will be involved
  • When it will happen
  • What the outcomes will be as a result of your initiative. These are the outcomes we’ll ask you to report back on once the project is completed.

As part of your application, you will need to attach an implementation plan, proposed budget and other supporting documents.

After you've applied

After you submit your application you will be notified by email to acknowledge that it has been received for consideration. All applicants will be notified in writing after the decision making process to let you know if the application has been approved. The next phase, of the application process is to satisfy a due diligence process and begin negotiation of your agreement (legally binding contract). You will also be required to report on your whanau ora outcomes every three months. And we have a team that is available to help you every step of the way.
