Ngāti Koata Trust Grants

The Ngāti Koata Trust provides grants to assist iwi members in achieving their goals, whether they be academic, sporting or some other field. We can also provide grants for health-related expenses. Please note the following:

● Approval for assistance in any particular year is for that year only, and does not automatically mean future applications will be approved.

● Applications will be evaluated on a case by case basis.

● Grants are made at the sole discretion of the Ngāti Koata Trust.


Important Message

Please be aware that all Ngāti Koata Trust Grants are now closed for the April 2016 – March 2017 financial year. The budget for each category (Education, Health and Sports) have been fully allocated.

All Grants will reopen in April for all three categories for all costs incurred in the April 2017 – March 2018 year.

Registered iwi members can apply for one grant in each category per year.

Please do not hesitate to contact the office if you have any further inquiries.
