Disability Inclusion Fund

Open for applications from 6 September until 12.00pm 18 October 2021.

Sport NZ have recently released a disability inclusion fund. The fund is open for applications that will create sustainable change within the play, active recreation and sport sector, to provide disabled tamariki and rangatahi (including young people up to 24 years of age) with quality and equitable opportunities and an inclusive environment in which to participate.

Sport NZ are seeking applications from national and regional providers of play, active recreation and sport to fund those who can clearly demonstrate how they can make sustainable changes within their networks, with an emphasis on providing for those with intellectual impairments and inclusionary practices.

The Disability Inclusion Fund is a total amount of $3,600,000 to be invested over three years at approximately $1,200,000 per year. Applicants can apply individually or collectively for single or multi-year funding.

For more information please see the information attached.


If you have any questions or are interested in applying for this fund, please get in touch and we will communicate with Sport NZ to get any more information you may require.
