VicHealth Grants available to help local clubs
The Nationals Member for Gippsland South, Danny O’Brien is urging local sports clubs to apply for a share in up to $500,000 worth of State Government funding under the VicHealth Active Club grant scheme.
Mr O’Brien said the grants of up to $10,000 were available to clubs looking to increase female participation or offer a modified sports program to appeal to a wider audience.
“Getting involved with a sports club has great social and health benefits for men and women,” Mr O’Brien said.
“These grants are designed to help our local clubs keep membership costs low and encourage everyone to get involved.
“Sporting clubs are crucial to maintaining community well-being and it’s important that we find ways to keep participation numbers high.”
Applications close 4pm, Friday 30 August 2019.
