What is KiwiSport?

KiwiSport funding  is intended to assist community-based providers of organised sport for young people

with very specific purposes:

To increase the number of school-aged children participating in organised sport – during school, after school and by strengthening links with sports clubs;

To increase the availability and accessibility of sport opportunities for all school-aged children to participate in organised sport; and

To support children in developing skills that will enable them to participate effectively in organised sport.

Projects must demonstrate collaboration and /or reduce duplication of services, and have at least four partners involved. Click here to read more.

Please note: multi-year projects approved in year 1 may reduce the funding available for major projects years 2-3.
