  1. Project Development Funding - The purpose of this category is to provide funding support to assist with developing, proving and/or planning for the success of projects that will contribute toward economic growth within the region for the purpose of making them investment ready, with a focus on utilising this funding for feasibility and business case development.
  2. Enabling Investment - The purpose of this category is to provide funding for projects that lift the economic performance of Taitokerau Northland through the construction of public or community held infrastructure that underpins economic growth or the development of regionally strategic sectors.
