Active Club Grants
VicHealth’s Active Club Grants offer funding to community sport and recreation clubs to increase or maintain participation through their club, by purchasing core equipment.
Core sporting equipment is needed by the club to conduct its sport and active recreation activities. This may include game equipment, playing uniforms or injury prevention items.
VicHealth is looking for clubs to outline how they can provide opportunities for more people to participate in sport through their club, or how they can keep people participating. This might include establishing new teams, programs or competitions; offering participation opportunities to new audiences; replacing equipment that is unsuitable or unsafe for use; or making participation safer through purchasing injury prevention items.
