Community sport in Hastings and Mornington play an integral part of our community and this
support will help them pay the bills and make a return to play that little bit easier.

These are the second round of grants from the Labor Government’s $40 million community sport
package that will make it that little bit easier for clubs to support players and volunteers as Victorians start to train together again and look to a return to competition.

Sport and active recreation clubs and associations have been hit hard by the coronavirus shutdown
and these grants are a key part of the Government’s investment in supporting the community in these
challenging times.

With more than three million Victorians involved in community sport and recreation, we know that
getting back on the field or court is important to Victorians – that’s why we are getting behind 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; grants of up to $200,000 for smaller state sporting associations, regional sports assemblies and academies and other state sport and recreational bodies; grants of up to $15,000 for associations and leagues; and grants of $1,000 for individual clubs.

Applications will be accepted until 15 June 2020, or until the funding allocation is exhausted. For further information and directions on how to apply, visit sport.vic.gov.au/grants-and-funding.

The Government is also getting on with shovel-ready community sport and active recreation
infrastructure projects across the state, investing $68 million to stimulate jobs and economic activity
and deliver fantastic new projects to local communities as part of the new $2.7 billion Building Works package.
