Whanganui River Enhancement Trust

Whanganui River Enhancement Trust

Applications have opened for funding from the Whanganui River Enhancement Trust.

Formed in 2002 as an agreement between Whanganui District Council, Ruapehu District Council and Genesis, the trust’s objective is to promote and encourage the enhancement of the waters and catchments of the Whanganui River.

The trust is now calling for funding applications for Whanganui River Enhancement Projects (environmental, economic and/or social).

For this funding round, the trust will give priority consideration to applications for innovative environmental projects that help contribute to the health and wellbeing of the Whanganui River Catchment.

For landowners wishing to undertake environmental works, the trust will consider a subsidy for capital works (e.g. fencing) of $2 for every $1 put in by the applicant. Specific criteria apply. 

Application forms are available in Word and PDF formats. Once completed, the forms can be emailed or posted to:
