Applications for the 2019-20 Sporting Club Grants Program are now open.
Grants are available to grassroots sporting clubs across Victoria to upgrade equipment, buy new uniforms and increase the skills of their coaches, officials and managers.
The program provides funding of up to:
- $5000 for training for coaches, officials and volunteers
- $5000 to improve operational effectiveness
- $2000 to address barriers that Indigenous athletes face in terms of participation in sport and active recreation
- $1000 for new uniforms and equipment
Member for Murray Plains Peter Walsh is encouraging interested local sporting groups to consider applying for funding under the program.
“Programs like this are designed to ensure all Victorians can enjoy the benefits of participating in sport and active recreation,” Mr Walsh said.
“Our local sporting clubs and associations play such an important role in our community.
“Being involved in community sport is a great outlet for everyone, where you can make new friends while improving your own health and wellbeing at the same time.
“I look forward to supporting these projects and others across the region to make sure our local people have access to the sporting facilities they are entitled to and deserve.”
Applications close on 18 February 2020.
