Positive result from improvements

The program also aims to improve health, wellbeing and safety outcomes and promote inclusivity. Round one grant recipient Yallourn Yallourn North Football Netball Club used its funding to lay asphalt at the George Bates Reserve which has proved a popular addition at the Bombers' fortress.

"There has been positive feedback from the players and members that the area now looks much more professional and attractive to new players. Community safety has been significantly improved and the works have reduced instances of holes and puddles after rain. It has also improved access to the change rooms, toilets and canteen by removing the previously rough and uneven surface." club secretary Debra DeCarli said.

Limited funds are available through a competitive process, with applications determined according to funding criteria and merit
