FUNDING INITIATIVES 
PUTEA TAUTOKO

Over recent years the Tūwharetoa Māori Trust Board on behalf of Ngāti Tūwharetoa has negotiated a number of initiatives to support Ngāti Tūwharetoa endeavours.

Ngāti Tūwharetoa – Mercury Development Group

In October 2002 the Ngāti Tūwharetoa Mighty River Power Development group was established as a result of a partnership agreement between Ngāti Tūwharetoa and Mighty River Power. In 2016 Mighty River Power became Mercury Energy and the group is now referred to as the Ngāti Tūwharetoa Mercury Development Group. The Development Group provides support for cultural, educational, and sporting initiatives.

Applications can be made throughout the year.
