Guidelines in applying for MNZ Rider Grants

The Board of Motorcycling New Zealand set aside each year funding for rider grants. 

Clubs are the first point of call for riders in applying for funding.

Clubs have the ability to help riders with funding and fundraising; after these avenues are exhausted the Club can then make an application on behalf of the rider – ideally the Club (or nominated representative) and the rider would complete the application together.

Funding will be allocated four times a year. Applications are to be received by the 20th day of the following months – February, May, August and October.

Provided the application contains all the information we need it will be discussed at the Board's next meeting.

Retrospective Applications:

We cannot approve applications for events that have already been attended.

You need to allow enough time for us to process, consider and make a final decision on your application.

Outcome:

The decision of the Board relating to your application will be sent to the Club applying for the funding, and the rider will also be notified.

Should the application be successful the grant will be paid to the applying Club who in turn pays it onto the rider.
