Settling In

The Settling In fund was designed to build capacity by allocating funding to enable refugee and migrant communities to develop their own solutions to challenges affecting successful settlement in New Zealand.

Settling In funding is now finished and has been replaced by the Ethnic Communities Development Fund as of 1 July 2016.  For future funding requests to the Ethnic Communities Development Fund please contact:  community.matters@dia.govt.nz or freephone 0800 824 824.

Settling In funded projects will continue to be delivered until the end of 2017. For information about groups that are currently delivering Settling In projects, see:
