The Andrews Labor Government is helping community sport clubs win with grants for new uniforms and equipment, training, and club development.
Minister for Community Sport Ros Spence announced applications are now open for the latest round of the Sporting Club Grants Program.
Previous recipients include Bacchus Marsh Baseball Association which scored $1,000 to purchase new baseballs and helmets for their ‘Kick-Start Program’, Foster Golf Club received $1,950 to undertake financial management training, and White Hills Bowls Club was awarded $5,000 to develop a strategic plan.
This round of the program is complemented by the Community Sport Sector COVID-19 Survival Package that provided $50 million to more than 7,500 clubs, leagues, state associations and other organisations across the sector.
The grants are part of the Government’s $1.2 billion investment in community sport and recreation infrastructure since 2014.
“We know the positive impact community sporting clubs have and this is about helping and investing in them so more people can reap the rewards of getting active.”

“The grant was a huge help for our club’s Kick-Start Program and is sure to benefit the local community for years to come.”
