Category 2: Skill Development – Grants up to $2,000 for clubs, up to $5,000 for leagues/associations.
Category 3: Organisation Operational Capacity – Grants up to $5,000

Can you apply? 

If you were one of the 33 successful Clubs or Regions who received a Sporting Club Grant from any category last financial year (2019/20) you are not eligible to apply again for a full financial year. ie. Club received a grant in 2019/20 will have to wait for any round in 2021/22 to apply again. BV understands that 33 clubs/regions received funding in the 2019/20 financial year, click here for full list of 2019/20 successful recipients.
