Funding available for your club
The latest round of funding under the Victorian Government’s Sporting Club Grants Program is now open, and closes on July 19.
Sport and Recreation Victoria’s funding program gives bowls clubs the chance to secure grants to buy new sports uniforms and equipment, as well as funding to expand the skills of coaches and officials, and to help clubs with strategic planning.
This round also includes a new category of grants that aims to break down barriers and make it easier for Aboriginal Victorians to get involved in grassroots sport, including travel assistance to compete in local competitions or carnivals.
Grants of up to $750 are available for travel and up to $1000 to buy new team uniforms or equipment. In addition, grants of up to $2000 are available to expand the skills of coaches and officials.
Sporting clubs can also receive up to $5000 for initiatives that strengthen their operations and sustainability.
The program has already provided $2.29 million of funding to over 1740 sport and active recreation organisations across the state, and bowls clubs around Victoria have been among the beneficiaries.
The additional funding to the Sporting Club Grants Program is part of the Victorian Government’s $600,000 boost to increase participation in sport and recreation for Aboriginal Victorians.
Applications are now open and close on July 19.
