Survival grants for sport clubs

Horsham district community sporting clubs are among latest recipients of $1000 grants through the State Government’s Community Sport Sector COVID-19 Survival Package.

Recipients are: Central Park Tennis Club, Dimboola Rowing Club, Kalimna Park Croquet Club, Kalkee Football Netball Club, Horsham and District Soccer Club, Horsham Calisthenics College, Horsham City Bowling Club, Homers Cricket Club, Horsham Flying Club,  Horsham Football Netball Club, Horsham Rifle Club, Natimuk and District Field and Game, Natimuk Tennis Club, Noradjuha-Toolondo Cricket Club, Sunnyside Sporting Club and Wimmera Australian Football Commission.

These grants are from the government’s $40-million community sport package designed to make it easier for clubs to support players and volunteers as Victorians start to train together again and look to a return to competition. More than three-million Victorians are involved in community sport and recreation and the government is providing support to 12,000 clubs and associations across the state.

The Community Sport Sector COVID-19 Survival Package has four categories: Grants of up to $350,000 for large state sporting associations; up to $200,000 for smaller state sporting associations, regional sports assemblies and academies and other state sport and recreational bodies; up to $15,000 for associations and leagues; and $1000 for individual clubs.

The government is also supporting shovel-ready community sport and recreation infrastructure projects across the state, investing $68-million to stimulate jobs and economic activity as part of the new $2.7-billion Building Works package.
