Murray Plains Sports Clubs Receive VicHealth Funding


9 February 2015




Fifteen sporting clubs in the Murray Plains electorate have shared in funding from round one of

VicHealth’s Active Club Grants program.

Nationals Member for Murray Plains Peter Walsh said the grants of up to $3,000 aim to overcome

barriers to participation in physical activity.

 “Often local sport and active recreation organisations which have identified a need within their

community for a new team or activity find it difficult to acquire funding for the essential equipment

or training required to allow the group to start the activity,” he said.

further funding opportunities,” Mr Walsh said.
