Applications are open for the $10 million fourth round of the Community Sport Sector COVID-19 Survival Package – taking the package to support these key grassroots organisations to $50 million.
The Community Sport Sector COVID-19 Survival Package has to date provided a lifeline for more than 6,300 clubs, with a further 430 leagues and associations and 75 state sporting associations, organisations and regional academies also supported.
All Victorian clubs that have suffered losses due to the current lockdown will be eligible to apply, including clubs that have been awarded grants in earlier rounds of the program.
Clubs and associations are doing it tough with restrictions on training and competitions and the new support will allow thousands of local clubs to move to a secure footing to return to play under the Victorian roadmap released last Sunday.
In the fourth round, clubs can apply for a grant of $1,500 and local leagues and associations $2,500 to cover costs and lost revenue associated with the cancellation of training, development programs and competition.
Previous recipients will be asked to respond to an email from Sport and Recreation Victoria by 29 October 2021 to receive their top-up grant.
