Community Sport Grant

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Funding is allocated each year to support sporting activities and approved projects in the Taupo District.

The purpose of the fund is to:

  • Assist appropriate voluntary sports clubs or organisations in the provision of projects or services that improve the wellbeing of the community.
  • Provide financial grants to individual resident in the area in recognition of an individual's national and international excellence in sporting endeavours and the profile their selection will bring to the community.

The Lake Taupo District Sports​ Advisory Council is a voluntary organisation which actively facilitates the development of sporting people and for the purposes of this community fund, is the distributing agency under contract to us.
