Innovation & Development Fund

The Targeted Populations Innovation & Development Fund is intended to support innovative projects that demonstrate a collaborative approach to reducing barriers to participation in sport and recreation at a community level by Asian and Pasifika Aucklanders. Indian participants are the primary Asian target population and Samoan participants are the primary Pasifika population. For both, groups there is a focus on newer (1st and 2nd) immigrant populations who may not currently be active in physical activity, sport or recreation.

The Targeted Populations Innovation & Development Fund is currently being updated. Please check back to this page periodically for updates.
