Sport Hawke’s Bay Grants $141,000 To The Regional Play, Active Recreation And Sport Sector

Sport Hawke’s Bay has approved funding for 14 new projects across the region with a focus to get more tamariki and rangatahi active through the Tū Manawa Active Aotearoa fund.

Funding was available through two funds which closed early February, with projects up to $10,000 applying to the ‘Fast Fund’, and larger projects, up to $40,000 applying to the ‘Full Fund’.

Sport Hawke’s Bay Community Partnerships Advisor, Kate Benny says “This was the first funding round for 2021 and as result we had a great response to both funds”.

“It has been great to meet with so many new organisations who are working alongside tamariki and rangatahi across Hawke’s Bay and to be able to support them financially to get young people active”.

“This month we have been able to support a wide range of projects from the Central Hawke’s Bay Children’s Day through to focussing on providing more opportunities for girls to play rugby alongside the Hawke’s Bay Rugby Union”.

Sport Hawke’s Bay granted $62,371 through the ‘Fast Fund’ with the breakdown being $1,100 to Play projects, $12,847 to Active Recreation projects and $48,424 to Sport projects.

Over $79,000 was granted through the ‘Full Fund’ with the breakdown being $68,232 granted to Active Recreation projects and $11,290 to Sport projects.

“We really encourage anyone looking at applying for funding to have a read over our guidelines on the website and to get in touch before applying. The more organisations we can support the better, we are here to help”

The Fast Fund Round 4 applications are now open and close on 10 March with successful applicants notified on 19th March. The Full Fund Round 3 applications close on 9 April.

“If you have a project that provides play, active recreation and sport opportunities for tamariki and rangatahi get in touch” Benny adds.
