The Sporting Club Grants Program provides grants to assist in the purchase of sports uniforms and equipment and to improve the capacity and accessibility of Victorian clubs and other community sport and recreation organisations and increase the skills of their coaches, officials and managers.
The grants provide community sports clubs funding of up to:
- $1000 for new equipment and uniforms
- $2000 for upskilling coaches, officials, administration staff and management committees
- $5000 to improve operational effectiveness
- $2000 to address barriers to Aboriginal participation in sport and active recreation.
The current grant round is now open for applications until 3 February 2019. Caucus members are encouraged to write to community sport clubs in their electorate to inform them of this opportunity.
Included in this pack is a shell letter for local sports clubs and social media graphics. Caucus members are encouraged to tag their local sports clubs on Facebook when posting.
