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.
