KiwiSport KickStart Funding Round Now Open

Tuesday, July 12, 2016

The KiwiSport KickStart Funding round is NOW OPEN. Applications close at 12pm on Friday 12th August 2016.

Sport Bay of Plenty coordinates an annual contestable funding round for sporting and community organisations and schools to apply for investment through the KiwiSport Regional Partnership Fund.

This fund is for ‘smaller’ initiatives (up to $2,000) that assist in the achievement of the objectives of KiwiSport. Priority will be given to initiatives that reduce inequalities (e.g. reduce cost), or show innovation. There is $30,000 available per sub region.

KiwiSport aims to:

  • Increase the number of school-aged children participating in organised sport – during school, after school and by strengthening links with sports clubs;
  • Increase the availability and accessibility of sport opportunities for all school-aged children to participate in organised sport; and
  • Support children in developing skills that will enable them to participate effectively in organised sport.
