About the Kickstart Fund

The Kickstart fund is available in the three sub-regions (Eastern, Western and Central Bay of Plenty) for ‘smaller’ initiatives (up to $5,000) that assist in the achievement of the objectives of KiwiSport. Priority will be given to initiatives that can demonstrate at least one of the following:
