Member for Morwell Russell Northe said grants of up to $60,000 were now available to construct a new menís shed, redevelop an existing shed or co-locate a shed.

Refurbishment grants of up to $30,000 are also available.

"Menís Sheds play a very important role in our rural communities and are one of the most powerful tools we have in helping men to remain valued and valuable members of our community," Mr Northe said.

"Most Aussie men have learned from our culture that they donít talk about feelings and emotions.

"Itís probably largely because of this that many men are prone to suffer more from isolation, loneliness and depression."

Mr Northe said becoming a member of a Menís Shed gave men a safe and busy environment where they could connect with friends and maintain an active body and mind in an atmosphere of mateship.

"I encourage incorporated not-for-profit organisations and local councils to apply for this round of funding," Mr Northe said.

Applications for grants close on Friday 16 June 2017 and guidelines and application can be downloaded at http://www.dhs.vic.gov.au/for-business-and-community/community-involvement/men-in-the-community/mens-sheds.
