A total of 78 projects around the Bay of Plenty have been approved as part of the first year of the Tū Manawa Active Aotearoa Fund for the 2020-21 financial year.

Tū Manawa Active Aotearoa provides funding for new and existing programmes or projects delivering play, active recreation and sport experiences for tamariki and rangatahi. Tū Manawa replaced and improved on Sport NZ’s Kiwisport Regional Partnership Fund. Where Kiwisport only focused on organised sport, Tū Manawa also funds play and active recreation. It also has a distinct assessment process for Kaupapa Māori organisations.

In the first year the fund placed emphasis on sport, recreation and play projects that engaged tamariki and rangatahi who have been missing out on typical physical activity opportunities. Research showed these groups included girls and young women, disabled people, those in higher deprivation communities and a slightly higher age bracket of young women aged 19 to 24.

Sport Bay of Plenty CEO Heidi Lichtwark says having over $1 million in funding available to the Bay of Plenty over the past 12 months has been a great opportunity to support those most impacted by COVID-19 by providing opportunities for them to enjoy the benefits of being physically active.

A list of approved projects for 2022-21, as at June 1, 2021, can be found below. They include 32 sport-related projects, 28 recreation-related projects and 18 play-related projects. The total Year 1 allocation was $1,191,086.00.
