Providing funding for organisations experiencing financial hardship


Sport Northland is proud to be administering the Kauri Mana - Covid Support Fund. The fund is administered by Sport Northland on behalf of Sport NZ. 

The fund will be available from 28 February 2022 and aims to provide financial support to organisations delivering tākaro/play, nga mahi a te rēhia/active recreation and hākinakina/sport opportunities that are experiencing financial hardship in the period 17 August 2021 to 30 November 2021 as a result of extended time at Alert Levels 3 and 4.

There is an expectation that recipients will consider how any support received from this Fund will be used to reduce barriers to participation for their members and/or participants.

This Fund provides additional financial help on top of other relief such as the Government Wage Subsidy Scheme, Government Resurgence Support Payment, other sources of funding, and support from national bodies.

This Fund is part of Sport NZ's Regional Covid Hardship Fund which is only available in the Northland, Auckland and Waikato regions and is specifically intended to address the increased impact due to the extended period in Alert Levels 3 and 4 in 2021.​​​​​​​
