Māori Provider Development Scheme
Applications for the Māori Provider Development Scheme (MPDS) have now opened
The 2012/13 MPDS funding round opened this week with the application form and guidelines available to download
The Ministry of Health has also published the MPDS 2012/13 Purchasing Intentions, which provides an overview of the criteria for MPDS funding.
This year the Ministry has invested in funding the Māori Provider Capacity Assessment Tool (MPCAT). The tool will assist both the Ministry and Māori health providers to determine the appropriate investment required to identify capacity strengths and indicate areas for further development.
The Ministry of Health will require Māori health providers who are not part of a Whanau Ora collective or Better, Sooner, More Convenient (BSMC) primary health initiative to complete the self-assessment process and submit the results with their 2012/13 MPDS application. To access the MPCA tool all enquiries are to be emailed directly to:
CBG Research Ltd
To be eligible for the development funding an organisation must:
- be owned and governed by Māori, and providing health and disability services primarily but not exclusively to Māori,
- have a contract/s with the Ministry of Health and/or District Health Board (DHB) and/or Primary Health Organisation (PHO),
- be in the process of developing a contract with the Ministry of Health and/or District Health Board (DHB) and/or Primary Health Care Organisation (PHO).
