Funds for cricket clubs on offer

The Nationals Member for Gippsland South, Danny O’Brien, is encouraging local cricket clubs to throw their hat in the ring for a share of the Australian Cricket Infrastructure Fund.

Mr O’Brien highlighted that the program, jointly funded by Cricket Victoria, Cricket Australia and the Australian Cricketers Association, is open to all cricket clubs, cricket associations, schools, local government and cricket facility managers.

“This fund provides grant opportunities across a number of project areas from minor expenditures to major upgrades,” Mr O’Brien said.

“The minor category funds projects up to $15,000, while the major category funds projects up to $40,000.

“I strongly encourage our local clubs who are looking for ways to fund their wishlist projects to get their applications in and take advantage of Cricket Australia’s current funding round.

“Local clubs can contact my office on 5144 1987 or email me at to arrange a letter of support for their application.”

Applications are open now and close Sunday, 24 March 2024. For more information or to make an application visit
