$5.2 million Community Sport Emergency Flood Assistance Program

by Team BV

As flood-affected towns across Victoria begin relief and recovery efforts, the Victorian Government is working to minimise the risks floodwaters can cause to human health, and investing to support communities to rebuild and recover together.

Communities across the state are still experiencing major flooding, with more rain in the coming days set to risk higher water levels and flash flooding.

Community sport facilities are at the heart of regional communities across Victoria – promoting good physical health as well as community connection, but many local sporting clubs have been damaged or completely destroyed by floodwater.

A $5.2 million Community Sport Emergency Flood Assistance Program will deliver an initial payment of $5,000 to directly-affected sporting clubs across the state, helping them meet some initial upfront costs of item and equipment replacement to help communities get back out on the field as soon as possible.

Clubs can apply for the grants immediately.
