Applications are now open to the Sport NZ Rural Travel Fund, which subsidises travel costs for young people who live in rural communities to attend sport competitions and events.

The Sport NZ Rural Travel Fund (RTF) was established in 2003 to provide assistance with travel costs for junior and youth sport teams in rural areas of New Zealand. This supports Sport NZ’s strategic vision to contribute to the wellbeing of everybody in Aotearoa through an enriching and inspiring Play, Active Recreation and Sport system. The RTF is administered on behalf of Sport New Zealand by 35 eligible Territorial Authorities across Aotearoa, including Wairoa District Council, to remove the barrier of travel cost and increase participation for tamariki (children aged 5-11) and rangatahi (young people aged 12-18) in rural areas.

Approximately $11,352.00 is available for distribution to assist with travel for rural sports clubs and rural school teams

Applicants should be a school team participating in local sport competition in weekends and/or sport club team participating in organised sport competition through club membership. Funding will not be provided to individual players, coaches, or officials.

Applicants are required to meet the eligibility criteria of the Rural Travel Fund.

Application forms and further information are available from: Latoya Tipuna, email or call into the Wairoa District Council offices or i-Site or phone 06 838 7309
