Sporting grants for clubs available

-

Sporting clubs across the Goulburn Valley can now apply for the second round of Sport Australia’s Participat­ion Grant Program.

A nationwide program aimed at keeping communitie­s active, grants of up to $450,000 are available to organisati­ons and clubs to help assist those managing the ongoing challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Federal Sports Minister Richard Colbeck said the $10.3 million initiative would support up to 40 new inclusive, high-quality sport and physical activity experience­s across the country.

“COVID-19 has impacted so many Australian­s and sport continues to face ongoing challenges because of the pandemic,” Colbeck said.

“This program will deliver community-based participat­ion programs to help tens of thousands of Australian­s get active and return to sport when it is safe to do so.

“Through this program, the Morrison Government is investing in innovative new

participat­ion programs that bring communitie­s together and make them stronger, more resilient and active.”

The new round of funding follows the program's successful first round held in

2018-19 and 2019-20, which delivered 62 sport and physical activity programs.

Applicatio­ns are open now until Friday, October 8, and successful recipients will be notified in November.
