Funding sources

Ministry for the Environment

The Ministry for the Environment has recently announced the next funding round for the Waste Minimisation Fund (WMF) and we are currently looking for new opportunities to promote the fund.  Approximately $10 million is available each year through contestable funding rounds to fund new projects that minimise waste.

The fund supports projects that:

  • increase resource efficiency
  • increase reuse, recovery and recycling
  • decrease waste going to landfill.

Key dates and how to apply to the Waste Minimisation Fund

The criteria, priorities, application form and guidance are available on the Ministry's website.  

The Ministry is encouraging potential applicants to talk to them directly so that they can provide advice on what can help make an application successful.  The team can be contacted by email or by phone on 0800 499 700.
