Applications for the 2022-23 round of the Change Our Game Community Activation Grants Program are now open.
The Victorian Government program backs clubs to deliver events and initiatives that promote gender equality.
Grants of up to $10,000 are available to eligible clubs and community groups across Victoria to help them create more opportunities for women and girls at the grassroots level.
Now in its sixth year, the program has already funded activations and events at more than 350 organisations across the state.
One such initiative was with Birchip-Watchem Netball Club, a club that prides itself on being an inclusive and welcoming organisation embracing members of all abilities, nationalities and sexual orientations.
The club used its grant to host an umpire and coaching session to help boost participation in netball and reward its dedicated and hard-working volunteer workforce.
Together with the Fair Access Policy Roadmap, launched by the Government in August 2022, the program provides a great opportunity for clubs and organisations to expand equitable access and use of community sports infrastructure.
