NGĀTI TŪWHARETOA GENESIS ENERGY COMMITTEE PROJECT APPLICATION

Page 1

PLEASE READ
Overview

After a lengthy consultation period between Genesis Energy and Ngāti Tūwharetoa, in 2000 the Tūwharetoa Māori Trust Board (on behalf of nga hapū o Ngāti Tūwharetoa) and Genesis Energy signed an agreement to mitigate the on-going impacts of the Tongariro Power Scheme on Ngāti Tūwharetoa.


An outcome of this agreement is the establishment of Ngāti Tūwharetoa - Genesis Energy Committee. The primary purpose of the committee is to distribute the mitigation funds on behalf of Ngāti Tūwharetoa as per the objectives set out below.


The 'project objectives' section is one of the most important parts of the application. In order to accurately assess your application, the committee needs to be able to understand the objectives of your project and how these relate to the key objectives of the committee.


The 'project plan & budget' should detail the steps that you intend to undertake with costs throughout the implementation of the project in order to enable the group to clearly understand what is being proposed.


For projects that are likely to be over $50,000 you can apply for a grant of up to $5,000 to undertake a feasibility study. This is to ensure that your project is scoped out appropriately before a full application is submitted to the group for consideration.


Please Note

The following application form is for those applying for a Tūwharetoa Hosted Event, Wānanga, Cultural Significant Trip and all Environmental projects.


A separate application form is available for people wishing to apply for an education, health & wellbeing grant.
