Ki Te Ara Whakamua: Māori Community Action Fund

May 2 @ 8:00 am - June 12 @ 12:00 pm

The Māori Community Action Fund is a one-off contestable fund established to support Māori-led solution to reduce Alcohol and Drug Harm.

The overall vision for the fund is Kia tika te wā; kia tika te wāhi, kia tika te tangata; kia ora te whānau – that whānau will thrive and flourish, with the right people, in the right place, at the right time.

A key pressure on the health system is that over 50 percent of New Zealanders will experience mental distress and addiction challenges at some point in their lives.   These challenges can not only affect an individual’s ability to care for themselves but can also cause considerable concern for their whānau and loved one.

Māori communities have demonstrated that when given the opportunity and resources to develop their own solutions, they can mobilise quickly, reach deep into their communities, and achieve results that matter.  Their solutions help to reduce the risk and burden of disease while helping to achieve better and more equitable health and wellbeing outcomes for all New Zealanders.
