Submit an application

What to do when you're ready to submit an application.

Before you start

Before making an application, we recommend you review the Get funding section of this site. We've explained in detail the types of projects that can be funded, the assessment criteria, and the information you will need to include in your application.

You can also use our printable Guide to the Provincial Growth Fund.

Download and complete an application form

The form you should choose depends on how much your project will cost, and whether you have already started working on it.

If you're unsure whether you're ready to start an application, you can use the expression of interest form to give us some information about your proposal. We'll give you feedback about what to do next.

Send in your application

For He Poutama Rangatahi applications, email your completed form to HPR@mbie.govt.nz.

For all other kinds of funding, email your completed expression of interest or application to PGF@mbie.govt.nz.

Once you've submitted it, one of our team will contact you to discuss your Expression of Interest or application.

If your application is approved for funding, we will get in contact with you about next steps.

If your application is declined, you will be advised in writing the reasons for the decline. Please note that we are unable to discuss feedback in detail for declined applications.
