New grants now available for local sporting clubs
Local sport and recreation clubs can now apply for a VicHealth Active Club Grant.
Active Club Grants provide groups with funding to buy essential sporting items and sports injury prevention and management equipment.
The grants are aimed at increasing physical activity and helping communities stay connected.
Member for Yuroke, Ros Spence, encourages all local sport and recreation clubs to apply.
There are two grant types that clubs can apply for as part of this year’s Active Club Grants – a grant of up to $3,000 for sports items and equipment, or a larger grant of up to $10,000 for core equipment that will help increase or maintain participation through their club.
The larger grants will be provided to up to ten clubs who are seeking to implement new programs and activities to increase participation, clubs trying to reach new community members who don’t currently participate, or clubs in areas experiencing significant population growth.
Priority will be given to applications from clubs and organisations that demonstrate how an Active Club Grant will increase opportunities for regular physical activity in their community.

Applications close on Friday 18 September.
