If you’re part of a rural sports club or team or involved in the arts, now is the time to apply for funding through the Sport NZ Rural Travel Fund or the Creative Communities Scheme Local Arts Fund before applications close at 5.00 pm on Friday 4 March.

The Sport NZ Rural Travel Fund aims to encourage youth (5 to 18 years) in rural areas to participate in local sports competitions.

Community Partnerships Advisor Jodie Griffiths said the funding is available to rural sport clubs and rural school teams with young people who need help to fund their transport costs to local competitions in Marlborough.

"The Creative Communities Scheme Local Arts Fund aims to increase access and participation in local arts activities," Mrs Griffiths said.

"Individuals or groups can apply to this fund for support for materials for arts activities or programmes, venue or equipment hire, personnel and administrative costs for short-term projects, and promotion and publicity of arts activities."

"Over the past two years Covid-19 has had a huge impact on the arts sector. We really encourage anyone involved in arts activities and projects to put forward an application," she said.
