Aboriginal Sport Participation Grants

The Aboriginal Sport Participation Grant Program contributes to the Victorian Government’s sport and active recreation policy priorities and provides a single-entry point for Aboriginal Victorians to access funding that will assist in addressing a range of barriers to community sport participation right across the state.

Grants are available to assist Aboriginal Victorians to participate in Aboriginal sporting carnivals, buy sports uniforms and equipment, as well as funding for travel and accommodation expenses for athletes to compete in state and national competitions.

Applications for funding are now open until 5:00 pm Wednesday, 4 August 2021.
