Tāmaki Makaurau Weather Event Emergency Relief Fund
Aktive, Sport New Zealand and Foundation North have stood up a $150,000 fund - the Tāmaki Makaurau Weather Event Emergency Relief Fund.
This Fund aims to provide one-off financial support to sport and recreation organisations that have been affected by the recent weather events in Tāmaki Makaurau. Organisations can apply for a maximum of $2,500 to assist with costs not covered by insurance.
Applications can be made for retrospective expenses incurred related to addressing flood related impacts or anticipated to be incurred that can be directly attributed to the weather-related events in Tāmaki Makaurau during the period from 1700 Friday 27 January 2023 to 1700 Friday 24 February 2023.
Applications for the Emergency Relief Fund are open now and close 1500 Friday 24 February 2023. To be eligible, organisations must be charitable in nature. Applications can be made for retrospective expenses incurred related to addressing flood related impacts.

A bespoke approach has also been set up to support sport and recreation organisations that have sustained severe impact (excluding Council and education owned facilities). This involves Aktive working with organisations to understand the need, over and above what insurance provisions will cover, which will help to inform conversations that are underway with funders. Organisations that believe they fall into the category requiring support via this bespoke approach should email firstname.lastname@example.org so these conversations can formally commence, noting a number of these are already underway.
Thank you again to Sport New Zealand and Foundation North for their support and commitment to the sport and recreation sector in Auckland, particularly at this time. Aktive is really proud and appreciative to be partnering with them to bring this fund to life.
