Things to consider before applying:
For the year ahead, some changes to the KiwiSport Regional Partnership Fund priorities have occurred. To see “more kids, more opportunities, more skills” occurring in our communities most effectively, applications that have a focus on the following will be prioritised:
- Programmes / approaches that engage and support young people in low-participating communities to ensure they receive appropriate physical activity or sporting opportunities. The following groups have been determined to have lower rates of engagement in sport:
Low decile communities
Girls aged between 10 and 18 years
- KiwiSport funding for in-curriculum initiatives will be minimal over 2017/18. The School Sport Futures project (Sport NZ) identified an issue with sport-based programmes replacing quality physical education, particularly in primary schools, and therefore Sport NZ has recommended this reduction.
If you have a large project that spans regionally, provides new, or expands existing, sporting opportunities for school-aged children that requires funding, then we would encourage you to send in your EOI application. KiwiSport funding is not intended to maintain the same initiative long term as funding is only confirmed until June 2019.
KiwiSport Funding Requirements for all applications can be found here.
