* The data reflects the original funding decision; this may differ from current and/or final appropriation impacts of these initiatives.
Final changes in appropriations relating to the 2019/20 fiscal year were included in the Addition to the Supplementary Estimates of Appropriations for the Government of New Zealand for the Year Ending 30 June 2020. Final changes in appropriations relating to the 2020/21 year will be included in the Supplementary Estimates of Appropriations for the Government of New Zealand for the Year Ending 30 June 2021 due to be published on Budget Day 2021. Appropriation changes relating to the 2021/22 year will be included in the Estimates of Appropriations for the Year Ending 30 June 2022.
For both packages, the initiatives listed in the Raw Data sheet or its alternate format crrf-summary-initiatives-data-v1-2021-05-07.csv file will not total to the total funding amount announced in respect of these packages. This is because not all initiatives were announced at the time of the publication of the original documents.
