    The Government has earmarked more than 56 million-dollars to support Maori communities and businesses feeling the economic impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic


    The bulk of that funding, some 30 million dollars, has been made available for targeted health funding for Maori.

    Associate Health and Whanau Ora Minister Peeni Henare says Maori communities face a number of additional challenges during these times.

    He says the inequities in the health sector provides challenges for Maori.

    A further 10 million will go towards community outreach, 15 million to Whanau Ora and one million to support Maori businesses with advice and planning tools.
