Creating opportunities for Kiwi kids

Max e-Grants provides children with grants of up to $5,000 for basic resources to support their learning.

Our programme provides assistance to support individual or small groups of children so they won't feel isolated or left out of activities due to social or economic disadvantage beyond their control. Schools and early childhood centres may nominate children aged from four to 18 years old for a grant.

The types of grants we fund for individuals or small groups are for school books and stationery, uniforms and equipment, special tuition, and subsidies enabling children to join their class on excursions and camps.

The Max e-Grants round has closed. Successful applicants will receive payment by 31 January 2022


If you have already received a grant you can find instructions on how to finalise and report on the outcomes of the project here.
