Who can apply?
All community-based kiwi conservation organisations, individuals, universities and recognised research facilities can apply for funding from The Kiwi Trust, as long as they meet our terms and conditions.
This year, applications will open on the 1st of March, and close on the 8th of April. The funding period is from July 1st 2019 through to June 30th 2020. All work must be completed during this time. Invoices before the funding year starts and after it has closed will not be accepted.
Applications are assessed by the Kiwi Recovery Group, which makes recommendations to The Kiwi Trust trustees. Trustees approve the final allocations, and these are announced in late June each year.
