Russel Northe MLA:
Community Sport Survival Package Second Round Open

Community Sport Sector COVID-19 Survival Package Round 2

By Portal Admin - 15th September 2020 - Back to News

Community sporting clubs, leagues and state associations who have been doing it tough during the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent restrictions that are in place, can now apply for grants through the Victorian Governments "Community Sport Sector COVID-19 Survival Package Round 2".

"Community sport has been turned upside down in 2020 with many sporting seasons, competitions and events cancelled due to COVID-19 and hopefully these round 2 grants can provide some support during these difficult times" Mr Northe said.

More than $19 million has previously been allocated to clubs, leagues and state associations from the $40 million package.

"This second round of funding will assist clubs, leagues and associations in preparing for return to play when restrictions are eventually eased" said Mr Northe.

Clubs that received $1,000 in the first round of funding will automatically receive an additional $500, whilst leagues and state associations will receive a further $1,000 with no additional applications required.

"Our local sporting clubs and leagues are a pivotal part of our regional communities in bringing people together whilst creating an active atmosphere that enhances our mental and physical wellbeing, I am very much looking forward to seeing many of our local sporting clubs and leagues returning to play in the near future" said Mr Northe.

Further information on the program and application processes can be found on the website.
