Applications are now open for the latest round of the Victorian Government’s 2020-21 Sporting Club Grants Program.
The grants provide clubs with up to $1,000 for new uniforms and equipment, up to $5,000 for the training of coaches, officials and volunteers and up to $5,000 to improve club operational effectiveness.
The funding will help people of all ages and abilities take part in grassroots sport, no matter where they live and is a great boost for clubs during the coronavirus pandemic.
Previous grant recipients include Altona Laverton Eagles Basketball Club which scored $1,000 to purchase new uniforms and Bittern Tennis Club which received $5,000 to develop a plan for increased membership, participation and sustainability.
The Sporting Club Grants Program is part of the Government’s commitment to make sport more accessible and inclusive, build sustainable sport and recreation, and increase local participation. The Government has provided more than 4,300 sporting club grants across the state, totalling more than $5.9 million.
