The second round of funding for local initiatives that help overcome homelessness across Aotearoa New Zealand opens on 16 November.

Some $6 million is available in round two of the Local Innovation and Partnership Fund, to support the development and implementation of local initiatives that respond to and prevent homelessness. Funding is available to community groups and councils of up to $100,000 per initiative for small projects and up to $1 million per initiative for medium to large projects.

The Local Innovation and Partnership Fund was set up in 2020. It was one of 18 actions set out in the Aotearoa Homelessness Action Plan to support local initiatives to reduce and prevent homelessness. It was designed to support Māori providers, hapū, iwi, community organisations, not for profit organisations and wider community partners to work together on innovative solutions to homelessness in their area.  

Applications for the Local Innovation and Partnership Fund and open between 16 November and 28 February 2022. To find out more and apply visit the Local Innovation and Partnership page.
