Each year, the Trust allocates around 30% of the net surplus for distributions to owners.  These distributions may be to individuals (e.g. Education and Health Grants) or groups (e.g. Marae and Community grants).  The distributions are managed via the Omataroa Rangitaiki No 2 Charitable Trust and are currently around $348,000 per year.
