Sport Whanganui is proud to be partnering with Sport NZ to administer the Sport NZ Community Resilience Fund in our region.
If you are a regional organisation or club, affiliated to one of Sport NZ’s National Partners (list found here), or you are a Māori Sports Club or organisation which is not affiliated to a National Partner but, can gain endorsement from one of Sport NZ’s Maori Partners (Factsheet found here) then you could be eligible for financial support through the Sport NZ Community Resilience Fund.
The Fund aims to deliver immediate funding to help regional and local organisations remain financially viable through the immediate period of disruption created by COVID-19.
Clubs can apply for $1,000 in support. Regional recreation and sports organisations can apply for up to $40,000.
The Sport NZ Community Resilience Fund aims to deliver funding to help regional and local organisations remain financially viable through the immediate period of disruption created by COVID-19.
It is not intended for the National organisations that already receive investment directly from Sport NZ. Instead it is for the regional and local organisations that form their networks (i.e. clubs).
The Fund is for organisations that are already materially negatively impacted by COVID-19 restrictions and/or will be materially negatively impacted by COVID-19 restrictions for the period April to June 2020.
This means that:
- the organisation cannot pay bills for fixed administration costs (excluding wages) in the three months from 1 April to 30 June 2020,
- even after accessing reserves and receiving other support from the national body, government and others,
- as a result of lost income or income that is very likely to be delayed by more than six months, because of impacts of COVID-19 restrictions.

If you are a Māori Sports Club or organisation which is not affiliated to a National Partner, but can receive endorsement from one of Sport New Zealand’s Maori partners (Endorsement Guidelines) then you could be eligible for financial support through the Sport NZ Community Resilience Fund.
