Community Sport Sector COVID-19 Survival Package

The Community Sport Sector COVID-19 Survival Package provides grants to support the operational viability of community sport and active recreation organisations impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The package builds upon the Victorian Government’s Experience Economy Survival Package which provided urgent support to help a range of key attractions, organisations and associations ride out the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and help them reboot, rebound and recover.

The Community Sport Sector COVID-19 Survival Package has already delivered grants totalling over $39 million to thousands of Victorian sport and active recreation organisations.

What grants are available?

The fourth round of the Survival Package provides an additional $10 million for community sport and active recreation organisations under one stream:

  • Grassroots Operational Support - grants of up to $2,500 are available for associations and leagues and grants of up to $1,500 are available for individual clubs and community sporting and active recreation organisations that have not previously received funding from the Survival Package.
  • Previous grant recipients (from any of the first three funding rounds) will be considered for an automatic top-up payment. These organisations will commence receiving payments from late October 2021, provided they still meet the Survival Package’s eligibility criteria. The ‘top-up’ organisations will not need to submit a new application to receive their automatic payment. Top-up amounts are $2,500 for associations and leagues and $1,500 for clubs.

For specific details on the survival package, including the objectives of the funding, the number of applications that can be submitted, the grant amounts available and eligibility of applications please refer to the program guidelines.
