VicHealth Grants available to help local clubs
21 August 2017
Member for Euroa and Deputy Leader of The Nationals Steph Ryan is urging local sports clubs to apply for a share in up to $400,000 worth of State Government funding under the VicHealth Active Club grant scheme.
Ms Ryan said the grants of up to $10,000 were available to clubs looking to increase female participation or offer a modified sports program to appeal to a wider audience.
“Getting involved with a sports club has great social and health benefits for men and women,” Ms Ryan said.
“These grants are designed to help our local clubs keep membership costs low and encourage everyone to get involved.
“Sporting clubs are crucial to maintaining community well-being and it’s important that we find ways to keep participation numbers high.”
Applications close 4pm, Friday 22 September 2017.

Sporting clubs wanting to apply for these grants can contact Ms Ryan’s office on 5762 1600 or at [email protected] to arrange a letter of support.
