Outdoor Activity Fund: Round 3 Applications

Applications for Round 3 of the Outdoor Activity Fund are now open. The purpose of the fund is to enhance diversity and inclusion in outdoor recreation, and to connect people with their culture through the outdoors. 2019-20 is the 3rd round of the fund and will support projects that grow the engagement of Maori and non-Maori who are underrepresented in participation in outdoor activities.

2019 Timeline

For Maori, we will support projects that engage Maori as Maori in outdoor activities. For non-Maori we will support projects that help to overcome barriers and enhance accessibility. Specifically for projects that increase engagement in the outdoors for asian and pacific people, and for people with disabilities. Encompassed within all projects we want to support those that encourage young people and families to engage in outdoor activities.
