If you are part of a sporting club in Mitchell Shire, grants are now open to assist with new uniforms and equipment, training and club development.

Clubs can apply for Victorian Government grants of up to $1000 for new uniforms and equipment, up to $5000 for training coaches, officials and volunteers and up to $5000 to better club operations.

Community Sport Minister Ros Spence announced applications were now open for the latest round of the Sporting Club Grants Program.

“Sporting clubs are the social fabric of communities and that’s why we’re backing them with funding for uniforms and equipment,” Ms Spence said.

“We know the positive impact community sporting clubs have and this is about helping and investing in them so more people can reap the rewards of getting active.”

The program is part of the government’s work to make community sport accessible and inclusive, stimulate local economies and create opportunities for greater participation.

This round of the program is complemented by the Community Sport Sector COVID-19 Survival Package that provided $50 million to more than 7500 clubs, leagues, state associations and other organisations across the sector.
