Grants Management System

The solution

As part of the NZ governments support package for COVID-19 relief, Aktive took on the responsibility to deliver grants to Sports Organisations in the Auckland region. The fund is part of the $265 million Sports Recovery Package announced at Budget 2020 and focused on providing support to help play, active recreation and sport organisations recover, rebuild and grow stronger as a result of COVID-19.

Our team developed a system that could run multiple grant programs, beyond the Community Resilience Fund and is now in use for activation funds to help cover the costs of delivering sporting programmes to help tamariki and rangatahi get active.

The platform gives the Aktive Admins a central location to view and approve applications while managing regional budgets and assess key information for reporting purposes. Additionally, the frontend allows sports clubs to easily apply for funding with an easy to use interface and intuitive step process. This solution has been custom built for Aktive and continues to evolve as new funding requirements arise and exists inside the same tech ecosystem as their website making management of their digital solutions a breeze. 

The result

Over $4.2 million of grants distributed to sports based organizations across Auckland
