The purpose of the fund is to enhance diversity and inclusion in outdoor recreation, and to connect people with their culture through the outdoors. 2019-20 is the 3rd round of the fund and will support projects that grow the engagement of Māori and non-Māori who are underrepresented in participation in outdoor activities.

For Māori , we will support projects that engage Māori as Māori in outdoor activities. For non-Māori we will support projects that help to overcome barriers and enhance accessibility. Specifically for projects that increase engagement in the outdoors for asian and pacific people, and for people with disabilities. Encompassed within all projects we want to support those that encourage young people and families to engage in outdoor activities.
