About the Provincial Growth Fund
New Zealand Government has allocated $3 billion, over three years, to enhance economic development opportunities in regional New Zealand. This is further supported by a commitment to improve employment outcomes across Aotearoa.
CEDA is excited about the opportunity and potential of the Provincial Growth Fund (PGF) to enhance and develop the Manawatu as a great place to live, work, do business and study.
As the lead economic development agency for the region of Manawatu (Palmerston North city and Manawatu district) CEDA aims to help regional PGF applications to progress. This means we’ve focused on helping and providing information and feedback for ideas and applications within the region of Manawatu only.
CEDA is here to enable, connect and review potential projects for the PGF to ensure that as a region, we’re working together to achieve the best results for all.
CEDA has been working with Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment and the Provincial Development Unit to ensure we’re tapped into best practice and updates. This enables us to help you by reviewing your application or project idea and provide you with feedback, connections and information to help you develop and shape your application.
Submit your project idea or application to CEDA for review and feedback
