Applications open for Community Cricket Program for grass root cricket clubs to share in $13.5M funding
Applications are open for the next round of the Community Cricket Program that will provide opportunities for grass root cricket clubs to share in $13.5 million to develop and upgrade cricket facilities across Victoria.
Member for Gippsland East, Tim Bull, is encouraging all local cricket clubs in need of facility upgrades to consider applying. The Community Cricket Program provides a range of grant opportunities for community clubs and councils to develop or redevelop local cricket infrastructure. Sport and Recreation Victoria will provide matching funding of $2 for every $1 provided by the successful club in rural Victoria.
Local cricket facilities are being encouraged to send your applications for facility upgrades, applications will be closed on 11 April 2022
Mr Bull said, "Funding can be sought to improve or redevelop existing cricket infrastructure including training nets and wickets, aging clubroom facilities and upgrades to improve change rooms accessibility."
"As a cricketer myself, I am aware of a number of cricket facilities in my electorate that could do with a facelift. Upgrades to degrading playing facilities will support player retention and increase both participation and enjoyment of the sport. Local cricket clubs have had little opportunity in the past two years to raise the necessary funds to improve club facilities to meet the needs of the expanding community."
Commitment to grassroots sport
Mr Bull said, "East Gippsland has a proud history of producing several elite and first grade cricket talent and it is due to the selfless dedication and commitment towards grassroot participation that ensures strong participation in our region," he said.
