Covid-19: Targeted funding announced for Māori

From Morning Report, 7:43 am on 23 March 2020

Money has been pooled together to help specifically target Māori in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic. 

It comes after the government came under pressure and were criticised for not delivering to Māori in the response to the virus.

But, yesterday it announced $56 million to go towards a range of ways to support Māori communities and businesses.
