Community Resilience Fund

The Community Resilience Fund Phase 2

Sport Gisborne Tairāwhiti is proud to be partnering with Sport NZ to administer the Sport NZ Community Resilience Fund (Phase 2) in our region. 

The fund will be available from 3 August 2020 and aims to provide financial support to play, active recreation or sport organisations who are experiencing financial hardship in the period 1 July to 30 September 2020, as a result of Covid-19.

Who can apply

The fund is open to a wide range of organisations. Please use the diagram below to test your eligibility.

We welcome applications from organisations that have not previously received funding from Sport NZ, and those that may have received some support already through Community Resilience Fund in May/June 2020. Applicants for the earlier Community Resilience Fund had to be affiliated to Sport NZ national partners, but this is not a requirement for Community Resilience Fund Phase 2.

One key change to the previous Community Resilience Fund will be the ability to claim assistance for a broader range of costs including operational costs that are critical to delivering activities and programmes, to support the reactivation of active recreation and sport now that New Zealand has moved to Alert Level 1. 

Not all clubs and organisations have fixed costs (such as clubrooms, phone bills etc), and assistance for operational funding will mean more community organisations will be eligible for support, and importantly, will be better placed to ensure our communities access to active recreation and sporting opportunities are reinstated/maintained.
