Clubs can catch $100,000

McIvor Times - - NEWS -

FOOT­BALL and net­ball clubs in and around Heathcote will be in the run­ning for a fi­nan­cial boost after the state gov­ern­ment an­nounced a new round of grants.

The fund­ing of up to $100,000 can be put to­wards any up­grade of the grounds or fa­cil­i­ties at the club.

In 2017, four clubs ben­e­fited from the grants, with Co­huna Foot­ball Net­ball Club walk­ing away with $100,000, Mer­bein Foot­ball Net­ball Club also $100,000, Sea Lake & Nan­daly Foot­ball Net­ball Club $80,000 and Pyra­mid Hill Foot­ball Net­ball Club $70,000.

Mem­ber for North­ern Vic­to­ria Mark Gepp urged lo­cal clubs to ap­ply for these grants.

“Footy and net­ball clubs are the heart and soul of North­ern Vic­to­ria. We’re giv­ing them the fa­cil­i­ties they need to grow and at­tract more mem­bers than ever be­fore,” Mr Gepp said.

“Regional Vic­to­ria is home to some of our top foot­ball and net­ball leagues, and these clubs have bred some of our na­tion’s great­est cham­pi­ons.”

Since the pro­gram was launched in 2005 more than $26 mil­lion has been sup­plied through­out Vic­to­ria to help lo­cal foot­ball and net­ball clubs with new projects in mind.

Ap­pli­ca­tions for the Coun­try Foot­ball and Net­ball Pro­gram are now open and close on 12 April 2018 — for more in­for­ma­tion or to ap­ply on­line, visit
