COVID-19 response

The play, active recreation and sport sector has been hit hard due to COVID-19 and the restrictions placed on New Zealanders.

Sport NZ launched an early relief package to help the sector remain viable through the pandemic. Following this, Government announced it would invest $264.6m across four years  into the recovery of the play, active recreation and sport sector as part of Budget 2020.
