New VicHealth funding to grow community sport in Lowan
VicHealth Active Club Grants are now available to support community sport clubs create new opportunities to get more Victorians playing sport and improve their health.
Specific focus areas are increasing female participation and supporting ‘social’ or modified sports programs for less active Victorians.
The Nationals Member for Lowan, Emma Kealy said the grants provided two levels of funding, with up to $3,000 or $10,000 available.
“I encourage local community sport clubs to apply for the funding which can support new teams as well as cover the cost of uniforms, coaching staff and equipment,” Ms Kealy said.
“We want to help more of our community become involved with sport, so it’s exciting to see sporting clubs and associations provide more opportunities for people who previously did not get involved with sport.
“We want everyone to get active and embrace a healthy lifestyle, regardless of their age, gender or ability.”
Clubs applying for VicHealth Active Club Grants can indicate if they would like to be considered for an additional $2,000 grant to promote ‘This Girl Can – Victoria’ to encourage women in their local community to get active.
Clubs are encouraged to apply for the funding grants through the VicHealth website by 4pm on 24 February 2020.
