Campaspe News - - NEWS -

LO­CAL sport­ing groups will be thrilled to know ap­pli­ca­tions for round two of the Vic­to­rian Gov­ern­ment’s Change Our Game Com­mu­nity Ac­ti­va­tion Grant pro­gram is now open.

The first round of the pro­gram was a slam dunk, with 22 com­mu­nity sport­ing or­gan­i­sa­tions re­ceiv­ing fund­ing.

The pro­gram is de­signed to sup­port ini­tia­tives that unite com­mu­ni­ties and show­case women and girls, fur­ther­ing gen­der equal­ity through­out the Vic­to­rian sport and ac­tive re­cre­ation sec­tor.

Mem­ber for North­ern Vic­to­ria Mark Gepp strongly en­cour­aged com­mu­nity sport­ing bod­ies to ap­ply.

“This pro­gram will en­able lo­cal clubs to fur­ther de­liver pro­grams that will drive pos­i­tive change within our com­mu­nity,’’ he said.

‘‘I en­cour­age all clubs within North­ern Vic­to­ria to get on board with this ex­cit­ing ini­tia­tive and change our game.”

Grants of up to $5000 will be avail­able to el­i­gi­ble clubs and com­mu­nity groups across the state and will es­tab­lish op­por­tu­ni­ties for women and girls at the grass­roots level, en­abling them to achieve their full po­ten­tial both on and off the field.
