The cut-off for applications for $1,000 grants for clubs and up to $15,000 for associations and leagues is September 21 2020.

The grants are helping clubs to meet costs to ensure they can remain operational and ready to return to play as coronavirus restrictions are gradually eased based on the directions of the Chief Health Officer.

Since the start of the coronavirus shutdown, the community sport and active recreation sector has suffered significant revenue losses. With training and competition returning, it has never been more important for players, officials and volunteers to be supported.

This initiative is part of the Victorian Government’s new Experience Economy Survival Package providing urgent support to help a range of key attractions, organisations and associations ride out the economic impacts of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and help them reboot, rebound and recover.

What grants are available?

The Community Sport Sector Short-term Survival Package includes $40 million for community sport organisations in four categories:

  • grants of up to $350,000 available for large state sporting associations;
