VICHEALTH Active Club Grant – Closed 5th December

vichealth2Applications are now open for Active Club Grants – funding for sports injury prevention and management equipment; and essential sporting equipment/items. Grants of up to $3000 (excl. GST) per application are available.

NOTE: This is a change from previous years.

Active Club Grants recognise the important role local clubs/organisations play in increasing physical activity and helping communities stay connected. Priority will be given to applications from clubs/organisations who can demonstrate that cost is likely to be a significant barrier to sport and active recreation due to relative socioeconomic disadvantage and/or are committed to reducing injuries which prevent people from leading a more active lifestyle.

Who can apply?

Applications will only be accepted from clubs/organisations that facilitate or organise community-based sport and active recreation opportunities as one of their primary functions. Recipients of 2011-12 and 2012-13 Active Club Grants are NOT eligible.
