Who can register?

Te Pou welcomes grant applications from eligible individuals and organisations for relevant learning development activities for the mental health, addiction and disability workforce. Consumer leaders in the disability sector can also apply.

Awarded grants form a legally binding contract between applicants and Te Pou.


Applying for an organisation

Applications from organisations must be prepared and submitted by an authorised representative of the organisation who can sign a contract on behalf of the organisation they represent. The organisation’s representative needs to register their organisation before applying unless the organisation has previously applied for a grant from Te Pou.

Organisations can have multiple users who can make and manage applications for grants. The first person to register their organisation can add other authorised representatives from the same organisation.
