VicHealth Grants to help women and girls get into sport
The Nationals Member for Lowan, Emma Kealy MP is urging local sports clubs to apply for a share of $400,000 worth of State Government funding under the VicHealth Active Club grant program.
Ms Kealy said grants of up to $10,000 were currently available to clubs looking to increase the participation of women and girls in sport or to provide more opportunities for people from disadvantaged communities to take part in sport and physical activity.
“Getting involved with a sports club and undertaking physical activity 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, 2 March 2018.
For more information or to lodge an application visit www.vichealth.vic.gov.au/activeclub or call (03) 9667 9028.
Sporting clubs wanting to apply for these grants can contact Ms Kealy’s office on 5382 0097 or email [email protected] to arrange a letter of support.
