Māori Business Support Line

COVID-19 Support: Need expert business advice? Call 0800 4 POUTAMA

On Thursday 2 April, the 0800 4POUTAMA (0800 4768 8262) Covid-19 Māori Business support line for Māori businesses was launched to give you direct access to specialist advisors who can provide the support you require as business owners and employers during these difficult times.

The Government is doing everything it can to cushion the impact on businesses through the many support packages that have been announced to date.  However, we know from the feedback we are getting that understanding and accessing this information as well as navigating through the system can be difficult for some people.

NZ Māori Tourism, FOMA, POUTAMA and the Māori Women’s Development Inc. have united to fully utilize our collective resources, expertise and networks to support you as Covid-19 continues to impact on us all. 

The 0800 line will be open from 8 am – 8 pm Monday to Friday.   This service is available to all Māori businesses adversely affected by Covid-19.

Kia haumaru te noho.
