2021 Sporting Club Grants Program now open

Applications for the 2020-21 Sporting Club Grants Program are now open.

Grants are available to grassroots sporting clubs across Victoria to buy equipment, uniforms and boost administrative skills and improve operations by increasing the skills of coaches, officials and managers.

The program provides funding of up to:

  • $5000 for training of coaches, officials and volunteers
  • $5000 to improve operational effectiveness
  • $5000 for COVID recovery to help sports get back on their feet after the pandemic
  • $1000 for new uniforms and equipment

The Nationals Member for Lowan, Emma Kealy 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,” Ms Kealy said.

“Our local sporting clubs and associations play such an important role in our community and this is a great boost for them to get their operations back on track following a disrupted 2020.

 “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 March 2021.
