Money available for local sports clubs
The Nationals Member for Gippsland South, Danny O’Brien, is urging local sports clubs and councils to apply for state government funding to build modern and safer grassroots sports facilities and new multi-sport indoor stadiums.
Applications are currently open for the $100 million Community Sports Infrastructure Fund and the $22 million Better Indoor Stadiums Fund.
Funds may be used to develop new, or expand existing, indoor multi-sport stadiums to meet demand for greater court space.
The grants also include $10 million for Female Friendly Facilities to build or upgrade women’s change rooms.
“Our local sporting clubs play a vital role in helping our regional communities thrive.
“These grants are a great opportunity to ensure our local facilities are up-to-scratch and keep attracting new members.”
