THESE grants offer funding to community sport and recreation clubs to increase or maintain participation through their club, by purchasing core equipment.
This round we’ll be placing a particular focus on supporting sporting clubs and organisations that can attract more people to their club, or improve participation opportunities for Victoria’s Aboriginal community. In awarding these grants, special consideration will also be given to applications from clubs in areas of socioeconomic disadvantage as well as clubs/organisations who can demonstrate that an Active Club Grant will increase opportunities for regular physical activity in their community.
The program guidelines and application information can be found at www.vichealth.vic.gov.au/activeclub<http://a.smartmailpro.com/link/my1vib4u6/x1uls0vomn>.
VicHealth is offering clubs the option to apply for grants of up to $3,000, or a larger grant amount of up to $10,000. We are offering up to 10 of these larger grants per round for clubs that can enable a greater number of Victorians to start or continue being physically active, including large clubs with a high number of teams, clubs that are seeking to implement new programs and activities to increase participation, clubs trying to reach new community members, or clubs in areas experiencing significant population growth.
