Our research shows us there are some groups who are less active (very often due to financial barriers that mean they miss out on opportunities) so making sure they can benefit from this funding is a priority. These priority groups for 2021-22 are:
Note: The fund will prioritise projects who target inactive tamariki and rangatahi.
No. You will need to meet just one of the priority groups.

No. Tū Manawa funding can’t be used in a school setting to provide an FTE or equivalent that are akin to HAL Advisor/Community Activator and Sport Coordinator/PE roles.
If your application is solely to deliver play, active recreation or sport opportunities before/after school or in breaks then yes, you can apply for support from this fund.
If delivery is to be within class time the application needs to be a joint one with the school and outside provider. The delivery of the curriculum and school plans is the responsibility of teachers and principals – they need to determine what activities they wish to run and when. Please note there is further documentation required which you can find on the Tū Manawa Application Resources Webpage.
Only where the equipment is an integral and necessary part of the activity you are providing to tamariki and rangatahi. Applications for equipment only are unlikely to be considered as they do not meet the purpose of the fund. Capital items are not eligible for support – the fund would quickly be exhausted if they were.
You do not need to submit an EOI prior to applying. However, we have found that applicants that do submit an EOI have more success in panel deliberations. Therefore, we would recommend that potential applicants do submit an EOI prior to applying.
Yes, you can. If both your projects hit the eligibility criteria and align with the key information provided in the "application Guide", then there is no reason we would not approve both. However, if writing two applications results in two poorly constructed applications, it is likely they would both be declined.
Yes. you can receive support. Please reach out to email@example.com.
