NZONAIR is a Government funding body that only funds commercially focused creative content. This includes, Recorded music,Video,Film and Television for broadcasting, Including digital platforms.The set up of a private radio station would be considered a business enterprise that would require small business funding or private investment. If the station is community or Iwi focused I would look to an appropriate funding body for the specific communities you would be servicing and supporting.
best of luck
