VicHealth Grants available to help local clubs

The Nationals Member for Lowan, Emma Kealy MP is urging local sports clubs to apply for a share in up to $400,000 worth of State Government funding under the VicHealth Active Club grant scheme.

Ms Kealy said the grants of up to $10,000 were available to clubs looking to increase female participation or offer a modified sports program to appeal to a wider audience.

“Getting involved with a sports club has great social and health benefits for men and women”, Ms Kealy said.

“These grants are designed to help our local clubs keep membership costs low and encourage everyone to get involved.

“Sporting clubs are crucial to maintaining community well-being and it’s important that we find ways to keep participation numbers high,” she said.

Applications close 4pm on Friday, 22 September 2017.

For more information or to lodge an application visit www.vichealth.vic.gov.au/activeclub.

Sporting clubs wanting to apply for these grants can contact Ms Kealy’s office on 5382 0097 or at emma.kealy@parliament.vic.gov.au to arrange a letter of support.
