Support for Iwi on COVID-19
Te Arawhiti is supporting iwi with their local response plans and working across Government to facilitate engagement.
On 22 March 2020, the Government announced a package of initiatives to support Māori communities and businesses in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Te Arawhiti can assist iwi to connect with agencies delivering these initiatives, as well as other relevant funding and services being implemented across Government. This includes,
- expanded Whānau Ora community responses
- targeted Māori health spending
- funding for whānau Māori community outreach; and
- help for Māori Businesses.
You can contact us on IwiResponsePlan@tearawhiti.govt.nz if you want assistance accessing these services. You can also access information about the work relevant agencies are doing by clicking here.
