Cricket grants now open
Cricket clubs across Lowan looking to upgrade their facilities or purchase new equipment can apply for two streams of funding from Cricket Australia.
The Nationals Member for Lowan, Emma Kealy is encouraging local cricket clubs to consider submitting applications to both the Community Cricket Program and Australian Cricket Infrastructure Fund.
The $13.5 million Community Cricket Program provides a range of grant opportunities across two funding streams:
- Community Cricket Facilities (closes 13 March 2020)
- Metropolitan Cricket and Community Centres (EOI closes 31 May 2020)
More information about the program can be found at www.sport.vic.gov.au/grants-and-funding/our-grants/community-cricket-program.
Under the Australian Cricket Infrastructure Fund, clubs can apply for minor or major grants of up to $30,000 to assist with their grounds, pavilion upgrades and practice nets.
Applications for this fund close on 22 March 2020, with further information available at https://www.cricketvictoria.com.au/grants/
“Clubs do a great job in raising funds to put back into their facilities through sponsorships, donations and raffles, but these current funding opportunities could be game-changers and significantly benefit and support cricketers and volunteers in our region,” Ms Kealy said.
“I encourage all local cricket clubs to consider lodging an application.”
Together we can make a difference
