Kiwisport Funding Round open

By Sport Bay of Plenty

Applications for annual KiwiSport's KickStart Fund and Skilled Deliverers Fund are now open until Friday, 10 August.

KiwiSport is a government funded initiative to promote sport for school-aged children. The Regional Partnership Fund (RPF) is coordinated by Sport Bay of Plenty (for Sport NZ) for use in Bay of Plenty communities.

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

The KickStart Fund is available in each of the three sub regions for ‘smaller’ initiatives (up to $2000) that assist in the achievement of the objectives of KiwiSport. The priority will be given to initiatives that reduce inequalities (e.g. reduce cost) or show innovation.

The Skilled Deliverers Fund is for new initiatives (or current initiatives that are expanding into new areas) to develop skilled deliverers – i.e. referees, officials, umpires, event managers and teachers.
