Grassroots sporting clubs in Victoria encouraged to apply for funding
Local sporting clubs across Victoria are being encouraged to apply for funding to upgrade equipment, buy new uniforms, boost administration capabilities and improve training for officials.
Applications for the Victorian Government’s 2019/20 Sporting Club Grants Program will open on Monday 6th January 2020.
The Sporting Club Grants Program is part of the Victorian Government’s commitment to making sport more accessible and inclusive, increase local participation and build sustainable sport and recreation and volunteer opportunities.
The new round of local club grants provide 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.
Victorian Minister for Tourism, Sport and Major Events Martin Pakula advised “strong local clubs are the foundation of our vibrant sporting environment in Victoria and that’s why we make such an effort to help out at the grassroots level.
“Grants for uniforms and new equipment can provide an enormous lift for a club and its members, and that spreads through the community.
“We’re not forgetting the people who run the clubs and coach the teams – providing training and support for these volunteers is an investment in the future.”
Since 2014, the Government has provided more than 3,500 Sporting Club grants across the state, totalling more than $4.9 million.
The Government has also invested more than $850 million in community sport and active recreation infrastructure since 2014.
