Overview

The SFA Committee was established in 1997 and is empowered by the Runanga Board to make funding policies and decisions.  Each year the Runanga Board determines the funding budget and based on this budget, policies are reviewed then implemented for the year.

Funding is accessible by registered Ngati Toa individuals and recognised Toa sports clubs, and applications are received all year round. Grant amounts will be based on factors including but not limited to, access to other funding, ability to fundraise, distance from home to sporting event and number of clubs representing a sport. (specific conditions & criteria apply). All grants are paid direct to the sporting body/club, team or association rather than to individuals.
