Sporting Club grants now open

Applications are now open to Round 2 of the Victorian Government’s Sporting Club grants program. The Sporting Club Grants Program provides funding that will help clubs and sporting organisations offer more Victorians the opportunity to participate and learn new skills through sport and recreation.

Grants are available for clubs to buy new sports uniforms and equipment, as well as funding to expand the skills of coaches and officials, and sports organisations can invest in initiatives that improve their operation and sustainability.

The program has three funding categories:

Category 1: Uniforms or Equipment

Grants up to $1000 to purchase uniforms or other equipment essential for participation.

Category 2: Skill Development

Grants up to $2000 to improve the skills of club members by providing training for coaches, officials, administration staff and management committees.

Category 3: Club Operational Capacity 

Grants up to $5000 to improve the operational effectiveness and efficiency of clubs through strategic planning or, to increase community participation through accessible sport and active recreation opportunities.

Round 2 is open from January 21 2016 to March 3 2016. A copy of the program guidelines can be found here
