Te Pūtea Whakamauru Para – the Waste Minimisation Fund (WMF) is focused on accelerating New Zealand’s transition towards a low emissions and low waste circular economy.
The WMF supports projects that create positive shifts in waste minimisation attitudes and behaviours, accelerate system-level change, protect the environment from harm including greenhouse gas emissions, and increase the reuse, recycling and recovery of resources.
The WMF will reopen on 18 October 2022. It will be open year-round, unlike the short annual funding rounds of previous years. The focus will be on initiatives that make the greatest impact.
Over $120 million available over the next two years.
