Country Football and Netball Program

Delivered in partnership with the AFL, AFL Victoria and Netball Victoria, the Country Football and Netball Program provides funding to assist regional football and netball clubs, associations and umpiring organisations to upgrade and develop facilities in rural, regional and outer metropolitan locations.

Examples of projects eligible for funding include the following:

  • development of new, or upgrade to existing change rooms and pavilions to increase capacity, inclusion and safety
  • development of new, or upgrade to existing sports ovals and courts to increase capacity and safety
  • sports lighting that improves facility capacity and participant safety. Lighting projects may include the installation of new LED Lighting Infrastructure, or the replacement of non-LED lighting with LED lamps to permit lighting standards to be met
  • projects that result in energy or water efficiency, with a direct impact on participation, such as warm season grass conversions.

The program is underpinned by the Department of Jobs, Skills, Industry and Regions’ priorities to ensure the state’s economy benefits all Victorians by creating more jobs for more people, building thriving places and regions and nurturing inclusive communities.

For specific details on the program, including the objectives of the program, the grant amount available and eligibility of applications please refer to the guidelines.
