    The Government has earmarked $30-million to make investment in underutilised Maori-owned land easier

    The Government has earmarked $30-million to make investment in underutilised Maori-owned land easier


    It will also change the law to reduce the barriers to developing that land.

    The sum comes from the $100-million Whenua Maori investment fund, created last year, which draws from the Provincial Growth Fund.

    Regional Economic Development Minister Shane Jones, says the grants cover 30 initiatives across eight regions of the country.

    A further $40 million worth of applications is currently being assessed by officials.
