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
Member for Western Victoria, Gayle Tierney 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.
For further information or to apply online, visit www.vichealth.vic.gov.au/activeclub.
Applications close on Friday 18 September.
Quotes attributed to Member for Western Victoria, Gayle Tierney MP
“Being active is important for a healthy lifestyle.”
“The Active Club Grants help our local football clubs, netball teams, and other sports buy the equipment they need to play the sports they love.”
“These grants will help clubs continue to play and compete, and will encourage more people to get involved, especially those who might not otherwise be able to.”
“Community sports groups often struggle to afford the equipment they need – that’s where these grants really help.”
“Whether it’s for essential equipment like bats, portable goals, uniforms and balls, or items to prevent or manage injuries, I encourage local clubs to apply for a VicHealth grant.“
