NZOA has notionally allocated $1m with the intention of funding 2-3 projects. Given the limited funding available NZOA recommends discussing potential applications with a Funding Advisor prior to submission.

The Content Development funds have been fully expended for both Supported and Diverse development, so NZOA will not be accepting any Content Development applications in this round.

Industry Development applications will be considered as well as new Cultural Sector Capability Funding applications.

Please note: The shortlisted applications to the Te M?ngai P?ho Co-Fund will also be considered in this round. Only applications that have been advised they have been shortlisted can submit a full proposal in this round. All eligible applications should be submitted via Te M?ngai P?ho's online application portal Te P?ahatanga
