3 March 2022

On the 28th of February, Hon Grant Robertson announced more support for sport and recreation organisations in the Auckland, Northland and Waikato regions financially affected by the extended COVID alert level restrictions between August and December last year.

The financial assistance will support local and regional sport and recreation organisations and providers who are experiencing financial hardship with fixed administration and operating costs.

The new fund, which has been allocated from the $265 million Sport Recovery Package comprises $4 million:

  • $2.2 million for Aktive Auckland Sport and Recreation
  • $485,000 for Sport Waikato
  • $315,000 for Sport Northland.

A contingency of $1 million will also be available across all three regions if required.

Sport and Recreation clubs located within these regions are encouraged to review the eligibility criteria for funding and make applications where applicable.
