Local sports clubs can now apply for a VicHealth Active Club Grant to purchase equipment such as racquets, goals, uniforms and injury prevention items.

Clubs can either apply for a grant of up to $3,000 for sports items and equipment, or a larger grant of up to $10,000 for core equipment that will help increase or maintain participation through their club.

Priority will be given to applications from clubs and organisations that demonstrate how an Active Club Grant will attract new players to their club and increase opportunities for local residents to get active.

For further information or to apply online, visit www.vichealth.vic.gov.au/activeclub.

If your club is interested in applying and would like a letter of support please contact Ms Graley’s office on 9704 6055.

“These grants will help our clubs continue to play and compete, and will encourage more people to get involved,”

“Many of our wonderful and growing local sports clubs struggle to afford the equipment they need and I urge them to apply for an Active Club Grant.”
