Grassroots sports clubs across the state can now apply for funding to boost their equipment, skills and administration expertise through the Sporting Club Grants Program.
The grants provide clubs up to $1000 for new uniforms and equipment, up to $2000 for upskilling coaches, officials and volunteers, and up to $5000 to improve operational effectiveness. Further, grants of up to $2000 are available to address barriers to Aboriginal participation in sport and active recreation.
These grants help people of all ages and abilities take part in grassroots sport, no matter where they live.
The Sporting Club Grants Program is part of the Victorian Government’s commitment to make sport more accessible and inclusive, increase local participation, stimulate local economies, and build sustainable sport and recreation and volunteer opportunities.
