The grants allow clubs to improve the quality and sustainability of local shooting sports facilities and activities.
Mallacoota Gun Club will receive $286,713 to rebuild its facilities after the devastating bushfires, nearly $300,000 will go towards Olympic and Paralympic upgrades at Werribee Victorian Clay Target Club, while Sale Pistol Club will use $22,875 to install solar panels to bring power to the site.
Additional funding will be provided to clubs that shoot outdoors to develop an Environmental Management Plan to support them to manage their environmental obligations.
Since 2014, 208 projects have benefitted from more than $13.4 million in funding to improve the quality and sustainability of shooting sports facilities and activities across the state.
The grants provide an opportunity for clubs to boost participation, better accommodate people of all abilities and provide real pathways from the grassroots to the elite level.
From Olympic gold medallists Russell Mark and Catherine Skinner to Commonwealth Gold trap shooter Laetisha Scanlan, shooting clubs in Victoria have a strong history of nurturing local talents into world champions.
Shooting sports clubs are also a great place for locals to get together and enjoy the benefits of outdoor recreation and learn about the safe and responsible use of firearms.
