Disability grants

Grant funding is available for disability organisations, disabled people and their family/whānau to take part in workforce and leadership development activities.

Te Pou o te Whakaaro nui (Te Pou) is a hub of workforce and leadership development for disabled people, whānau and the disability workforce.

Grants are available to enhance skills, develop leadership and strengthen the workforce of people providing supports to disabled people and their whānau.

Te Pou grants are made available by the Ministry of Health (MoH) who set the priority areas for funding.

Individualised Funding (IF) and access to the Te Pou grants

People who access IF or people registered on the new disability support, System Transformation in Mid-Central are able to apply for Te Pou grants, without needing to go through an IF host provider. This gives disabled people flexibility and control over service support and delivery.
