Te Māngai Pāho provides operational funding for twenty one iwi radio stations. Those stations broadcast on frequencies reserved for the promotion of Māori language and culture.

At the present time Te Māngai Pāho does not have funding available for additional iwi radio stations. It does, however, manage a contestable funding pool for three radio initiatives: a radio training programme, a Māori news service and a midnight to dawn programme for the iwi radio network.
