Ap­pli­ca­tions are in­vited from Auck­land-wide or­gan­i­sa­tions that are: with a re­gion-wide man­date; re­gional fed­er­a­tions or group­ings of lo­cal or sub-re­gional sports code or­gan­i­sa­tions; re­gional sport and re­cre­ation providers or ad­vo­cacy groups; or iwi and other Ma¯ori or­gan­i­sa­tions ac­tive in the sport and re­cre­ation sec­tor. The coun­cil says grants will be tar­geted to­wards pro­grammes that sup­port ac­cess to sport and re­cre­ation and which do not ben­e­fit from ded­i­cated or coun­cil-sub­sidised fa­cil­i­ties and out­door en­vi­ron­ments.
