The Pacific Community Health Fund: Pacific community organisation

The Pacific Community Health Fund (the Fund) is a collaborative initiative between the Ministry of Health and Ministry for Pacific Peoples to ensure greater Pacific community involvement in the delivery of innovative health and wellbeing initiatives. It is a contestable fund that supports the development and implementation of innovative community initiatives, including initiatives to share evidence-based Pacific models of care.

The Fund is split in to two work streams:

  • Workstream A: Pacific health providers
  • Workstream B: Pacific community organisations.

This page provides information for Pacific community organisations for workstream B funding. Information on Workstream A can be accessed via the Government Electronic Tender Service (GETS) website: www.GETS.govt.nz.

Examples of Pacific community organisations include but are not limited to not-for-profit groups/organisations, church groups, community sports clubs and registered charities.  All organisations will be required to demonstrate that they provide services primarily, but not necessarily exclusively, for Pacific peoples. 

How much funding is available?

For 2019/20, funding of up to $10,000 per initiative will be available, depending on the strength of the initiatives against the funding criteria.
