Grants & Funding

A range of opportunities for grants and funding are available through KMR Programme including the Landowners Grants Scheme and the Whenua Whānui Fund. We are also partnering with other organisations such as Environs Holdings Limited, Fonterra & The Forest Bridge Trust to help deliver on the Programme.

All currently available information documents and application forms are available below.

Navigator Projects

In 2023, we also want to work with landowners and/or groups across the catchment who are keen to undertake larger-scale and/or innovative sediment reduction projects, and to share their experience and learnings with others in their community, iwi/hapū, or sector.

Landowner Grants Scheme

The Landowner Grants Scheme supports landowners on sediment reduction projects that improve water quality and restore the mauri of Kaipara Moana. If you are a landowner and would like to express your interest in the KMR Programme, please complete the form below and a KMR Field Advisor will be in touch.

Whenua Whānui Scheme

The Whenua Whānui Fund is aimed at supporting marae and community groups to participate in restoration efforts for Kaipara Moana.
