$74,403 Granted In Latest Round Of Funding To Hawke’s Bay Play, Active Recreation And Sport Sector

Sixteen organisations have received funding through the latest round of funding under the Tū Manawa fund, administered by Sport Hawke’s Bay.

A total of $74,403 has been granted to the play, active recreation and sport sector which will see more young people from across Hawke’s Bay have an opportunity to be active.

Of the approved projects, $46,593 was granted to active recreation, $12,620 to play and a further $15,190 to sport initatives.

Tū Manawa Active Aotearoa is a partnership between Sport NZ and Regional Sports Trusts across New Zealand. The fund aims to support programmes or projects that focuses on play, active recreation and sport experiences for tamariki and rangatahi.

Sport Hawke’s Bay Community Partnerships Advisor, Kate Benny says “It has been great to be able to support 16 new initatives that all focus on removing barriers for young people to be active.”

“A highlight for this round was an application made by students from Karamu High School. It was as simple as a group of senior students surveying the junior school, finding out what activities they wanted to do and applying. As a result, we have been able to fund the students $7,300 to run their Activate Me programme which is a mix of active recreation opportunities”.

Round 1 for the Full Fund is now open and projects or initatives that request funding of up to $40,000 are welcome to apply.

“If you have a project that clearly shows young people want to take part in, or better still, young people have developed themselves then we encourage you to apply” Benny adds.

Funding is available for a wide range of organisations from throughout the region. Sport Hawke’s Bay encourages anyone thinking about applying for funding to make contact before applying.
