Sport Waikato has opened a new round of funding to be allocated through its Community Partnership Fund for the 2016-2017 year.
Organisations wishing to apply for community partnership funding should contact Gilly Alexander at Sport Waikato on (07) 858 5388 to discuss their proposed projects. An application will be provided following these discussions.
The Community Partnership Fund will enable a more targeted approach to the development of youth sport in each community. The final part of the CPF will have a specific focus on projects that target increased participation for Girls and Women, aligning to Moving Waikato 2025, a joint strategy agreed to by key stakeholders across the Waikato region to grow participation in sport, recreation and physical activity.
RSO’s/NSO’s, clubs, school clusters and community organisations will be eligible to apply to the Community Partnership Fund.
Projects may target just one age group of girls or girls of all ages and identify key communities where partnerships and delivery will be established. Projects may focus on developing sporting pathways, connecting individuals to clubs and opportunities to participate. All projects should be focused on a partnership approach. An advisory panel will ensure where possible a region wide coverage is achieved when allocating this fund.
A maximum of $40,000 p.a can be applied for local projects with contributions of greater value applicable for projects of regional significance. Financial contributions from applicants in support of projects are viewed favourably by the panel.
This will be the final CPF application round for 2016-2017 with applications closing 16 June 2017.

Priority will be given to projects that are seen to address both KiwiSport and community priorities and show evidence of the following:
- Partnerships between schools, clubs, community and/or sporting organisations
- Clear outcomes and rational regarding the need for the project in targeted communities
- Baseline figures of current participation and projected growth as a result of the project
- Evidence of how the project will impact on low participation groups and/or children NOT currently involved in sport
- Projects that are cost effective (amount of delivery in relation to KiwiSport investment) and have sustainable strategies. Projects should still however be meaningful and not solely about delivery.
- Alignment to Regional and National junior development programmes
- Projects that reflect the seasonality of sport
- Projects that are well thought out, targeted and clearly identify the number of sessions, duration of sessions, what time of year and the setting (afterschool, lunchtime, weekend, in-school, holiday)
