Activities that are the responsibility of other government agencies

To make best use of our resources we don’t fund activities that are the responsibility of other government agencies.

Check which government organisation funds your type of project.  

  • Manatū Taonga - Ministry for Culture and Heritage.
    You cannot apply to Creative New Zealand for a project, project phase or programme of activity that has received funding via Manatū Taonga Ministry for Culture and Heritage’s Arts and Culture COVID Recovery Programme (apart from the Cultural Sector Emergency Relief Fund, the Arts and Culture Event Support Scheme and the Grant for Self-Employed Individuals). But, you can apply for a different project or a different phase of the same project.
    Creative New Zealand and Manatū Taonga share relevant information on applications to avoid duplication of funding.

This is not an exhaustive list. Please also refer to Other Sources of Funding on our website.
