Taranaki Elite Athletes Foundation (TEAF)
The Taranaki Elite Athletes Foundation provides funding to Taranaki athletes who are current New Zealand representatives or those deemed to be at the elite level of their respective sport.
Applications open twice yearly and are advertised throughout Taranaki in late autumn and late spring. Athletes can only apply for assistance once during a calendar year and unless there are exceptional circumstances, applicants must be 18 years of age or over at the time of application.
If athletes are granted funding they will be required to make their purchases towards travel and/or equipment and submit their invoices and receipts for reimbursement from the foundation, up to the value of their grant.
Applications for the current TEAF funding round are now open and open until 5pm Sunday 8 August.
