Member for Morwell Russell Northe is pleased to advise local sporting clubs that the latest round of the Victorian Governments 2020/2021 Sporting Club Grants are now open for application.
"The grants provide an opportunity for clubs to apply for $1,000 for the purposes of new club uniforms and equipment; up to $5,000 for the training of coaches, officials and volunteers; and up to $5,000 to improve club operational effectiveness" Mr Northe said.
"2020 has been an incredibly challenging year for local sporting and recreation clubs and leagues and hopefully these grants will provide a boost to many local sporting organisations" added Mr Northe.
The program consists of three funding categories:
Category 1: Uniforms or Equipment
Grants up to $1,000 to purchase uniforms or other equipment that is essential for participation, safety, or first aid equipment for immediate attention to injury that may occur participating in sport or active recreation.
Category 2: Skill Development
Grants to improve the skills of organisation members by providing training for coaches, officials, administration staff and management committees.
- Up to $2,000 for individual organisations
- Up to $5,000 for leagues, associations or an organisation that collaborates with multiple organisations to deliver training for a broad range of participants.
Category 3: Organisation Operational Capacity
Grants of up to $5,000 to improve the operational effectiveness and efficiency of organisations through strategic planning or to increase community participation through accessible sport and active recreation opportunities such as alternative, modified or pilot programs.
Applications close 29 September 2020.
