COVID Support Grants for Clubs

May 25, 2020

The State Government, through the Sport & Recreation Victoria, have opened up Community Sport Sector Short-term Survival Package grants. This means:

  • that grants of up to $15,000 are available for associations and leagues; and
  • grants of $1,000 are available for individual clubs.

Financial support will be provided to assist the club to remain operational during the eligibility period, and to support readiness to return-to-play in adherence with Victorian Chief Health Officer restrictions and advice. For more information, see: https://sport.vic.gov.au/our-work/return-to-play

Funding can be used for fixed costs (e.g. rent/utilities/insurance), essential salary costs (not match/player/coach payments) and any other costs that keep the club viable and ready to function once restrictions ease.

If you intend to apply for the club grants of up to $1,000, please do so as soon as you practically can. This is a “first in best dressed” grant, open until June 15.
