The program replaces and upgrades ageing facilities for football and netball clubs across rural, regional and outer metropolitan Victoria, so they can meet growing demand and welcome even more members.
It’s a funding partnership with the AFL, AFL Victoria and Netball Victoria to help netball and football clubs across the state, because everybody deserves equal facilities, no matter where they live.
Grants of up to $100,000 go to projects such as ground resurfacing, installation of lighting, building modern and safer netball courts and new pavilions with accessible and female-friendly change rooms.
Since 2005, the Country Football and Netball Program has invested more than $26.6 million to over 480 projects across the state.
Better sport and recreation facilities make it easier for players, coaches, umpires and supporters of all abilities to get involved in local sport and lead healthy and active lifestyles.
Clubs in regional Victoria and outer metropolitan areas of Melbourne are eligible to apply. Applications are now open and close on 3 June 2019. For more information or to apply online
