More than 580 grassroots clubs and organisations will share in $900,000 from the latest round of the Sporting Club Grants Program.
The grants provide clubs with up to $1,000 for new uniforms and equipment, up to $5,000 for training coaches, officials and volunteers, and up to $5,000 to improve club operational effectiveness. Funding will help people of all ages and abilities take part in sport as the state moves steadily towards COVID Normal.
This funding is in addition to the Victorian Government’s investment of $6 million in the popular program, as announced in last week’s state budget.
Grant recipients include Kensington Colts Junior Basketball Club which received $1,000 to purchase new uniforms, and Kyabram District Football League which is receiving $5,000 to develop a strategic plan for 2021-2026.
The Sporting Club Grants Program is part of the Government’s commitment to make sport more accessible and inclusive, stimulate local economies, build sustainable sport and recreation and volunteer opportunities, and increase local participation.
Since 2014, the Victorian Government has provided more than 4,950 sporting club grants totalling more than $6.8 million to clubs across the state.
