A $3.5 million grant has taken The Hundertwasser Art Centre with Wairau Maori Art Gallery in Northland over it's fundraising target.

The aim was to raise $16.25m by June 30, and the Lotteries Commission grant took the total to $18.6m two weeks early.

Project Director Andrew Garratt has called it a win for and by Northland.

"The incredible effort from this community to raise funds and voice to this project has been heard."

Whangarei Mayor Sheryl Mai is also pleased with the news.

"This project has withstood passionate arguments for and against it, and for those committed to this vision it is a well won victory."
