Tāmaki Makaurau Weather Event Emergency Relief Fund

The purpose of the Tāmaki Makaurau Weather Event Emergency Relief Fund is to support not for profit organisations in Tāmaki Makaurau that exist to provide sport and recreation opportunities to Aucklanders.  

Eligible organisations will be considered for a grant of up to $2,500 to support costs incurred or anticipated to be incurred that can be directly attributed to the recent weather-related events in Tāmaki Makaurau during the period from 1700 Friday 27 January 2023 to 1700 Friday 24 February 2023.  Please note this fund is now closed.

Costs incurred or anticipated to be incurred must be linked to ensuring a safe return to sport or recreation opportunities, minimising the impact on participation.  

Retrospective grants will only be considered for costs incurred from Friday 1700 27 January 2023. Appropriate evidence will also be required.  

Any applicants wishing to be considered for a grant must have their application submitted by 1500 Friday 24 February 2023. Limited funds do exist so not all applications will be able to be supported.  

Some examples of costs you can apply for include commercial cleaning and cleaning products, uniforms, sporting equipment, office equipment, plumbing, electrical and associated labour costs.
