Sporting Club Grants Program re-opens with COVID-19 recovery category

The Victorian Government’s Sporting Club Grants Program is open for a second round of applications, with the addition of a new COVID-19 recovery category.

Clubs are eligible for up to $2,000 to assist with return to play costs and other costs associated with implementing a COVID safe approach.

Clubs can apply for this assistance under ‘Category 4: Coronavirus (COVID-19) Recovery’.

Please note: Organisations are eligible to apply under this category regardless of whether they received funding in the previous round.

In addition to the new category, the Sporting Club Grants Program will continue to provide clubs the opportunity to apply for:

  •     Category 1: Up to $1,000 for uniforms or equipment.
  •     Category 2: Up to $2,000 for the development of coaches, officials and other staff.
  •     Category 3: Up to $5,000 for improvements to an organisation’s operational capacity.
