Sharing on behalf of Te Hiringa Hauora | Health Promotion Agency.


Te Hiringa Hauora | Health Promotion Agency is offering one-off grants of $15,000 to $100,000 for kaupapa that support the First 1,000 Days of a baby’s life – especially community driven solutions, that meet community and whānau need.

If your community, or one you work with, is doing bold new things around pre-conception, contraception, maternal mental health, pregnancy or baby’s first two years, we should talk. We may be able to provide that extra bit of ‘umph’ and support.

Te Hiringa Hauora wants to amplify the community expertise that already exists around the country – particularly if it’s a bit ‘out of the box’ and getting results. The people behind it don’t have to be flash, or big, or famous, or write long essays or have an office. They just have to know what works for, and with, their people.
