Sports and recreational clubs

How to get financial support if you're a sports or recreational club.

To help clubs and recreational organisations get back up and running, Sport NZ has launched a Community Resilience Fund for Regional Sports Trusts to access.

The fund is available to help regional and local sports organisations remain financially viable following disruption caused by COVID-19. This applies if:

  • the organisation cannot pay bills for fixed administration costs, excluding wages, in the 3 months from 1 April to 30 June 2020
  • there is a need as a result of lost income, or income that is likely to be delayed by more than 6 months, because of the impacts of COVID-19.

A club can apply for $1,000 for fixed costs incurred from 1 April to 30 June 2020 and regional recreational and sports organisations can apply for up to $40,000.

Apply via your local Regional Sports Trust. Each trust has a different application process for contestable funds.
