VicHealth’s Active Club Grants offer funding to community sport and recreation clubs to increase or maintain participation through their club, by purchasing core equipment.

VicHealth recognises that club and organised sport is important in improving health and getting people active, and they are pleased to assist local sports clubs across the state to increase opportunities for Victorians to engage in physical activity.

Golf Victoria congratulates these four successful recipients and encourages clubs from around the state to apply for funding through these and other state government grants, which will be promoted on our grants page as they become available.
