About Raukawa Grant Funding

Raukawa makes a strong commitment to give back to our marae and iwi members as we prudently administer our settlement funds. This year we are honoured and privileged to be able to support the development and future of our iwi with over $700,000 of funding which is available for marae, education, kuia and koroua wellbeing, and sports grants.
