“My aspiration is that rangatahi are encouraged to take positive action into their own hands when it comes to developing their communities”

Trevor, TiraRangatahi


Our Rangatahi-led funding has ended for this year. That means you can’t get funding for things you want to run this year or in January 2023.   If you would like a text or an email when our funding re-opens, please complete the contact form below. Ngā mihi!

Contact Form on Rangatahi-Led Funding


TiraRangatahi are looking for rangatahi who need pūtea to run projects in their community.

The Rangatahi-led fund is open for applications most of the year (we stop over December/ January only).

  • Project ideas need to come from and be led by rangatahi aged between 12– 24 years.
  • Groups of rangatahi can apply for up to $5,000.
  • There is no closing date!

Who can apply?

You / your rōpū must be aged 12-24 years old and live in the ECCT rohe. Check out this map to see if you are in the region.    You / your rōpū must be one or more of the following:

  • Rangatahi Māori
  • Pasifika youth
  • Rangatahi with disabilities
  • Rainbow youth
  • Rangatahi in communities experiencing hardship/disadvantage.

What kind of project could get funded?

We are pretty open to what could be funded. Your project could be an event or a longer project. It can be something you are doing for other rangatahi or something aimed at your community.
Your project can be as long or as short as you would like it to be.
All projects need to be completed by December 2022.

How do I apply?  It is super easy; you just need to tell us a little about you and your project via the online form.
