Output Expenses

Incremental increases in non-departmental output expenses from 2019/20 are due to funding for Sport New Zealand to improve wellbeing through support for delivery of the health and physical education curriculum including teacher support, a focus on healthy eating and provision of active school environments.

In addition, initiatives associated with the Sport Recovery Package in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic generated a significant increase in the 2020/21 financial year, with ongoing funding diminishing through to 2024/25, to support the rebuilding of play, active recreation and sport organisations following disruptions associated with lockdown measures.
