Through the program, the Victorian Government has teamed up with AFL, AFL Victoria and Netball Victoria to fund a range of facility developments for country football and netball clubs across the state.
This new round continues the great work of helping regional clubs, and clubs on the metropolitan fringe, who may be struggling with out-dated, over-used or weather-damaged facilities.
Grants of up to $100,000 are available for projects that improve facilities, including changeroom overhauls, replacement of drought-affected turf, and installation of court lighting.
Since 2005, the program has kicked in over $23 million to more than 460 projects. This has delivered much needed infrastructure upgrades and given clubs the infrastructure they need to grow.
Eligible Victorian football and netball clubs can apply for funding through their local councils.
Applications for the program are open now. For further information or to apply for funding, visit the Country Football Netball Program page.
