Sporting Club Grants Program back again

The latest round of the Sporting Club Grants Program will continue to break barriers for grassroots sport and recreation organisations, encouraging local communities to stay healthy and active.

Minister for Community Sport Ros Spence has announced applications are open for the latest round of the Sporting Club Grants Program.

The grants program sees a strong focus on supporting, celebrating and building the capacity of sports volunteers in vital roles – from administration to coaching and umpiring.

Grants of up to $1,000 are available for uniforms, equipment and resources that improve accessibility and engagement; up to $2,000 for projects to strengthen volunteering and officiating; up to $4,000 to deliver a new sport or recreation program and up to $750 to support athlete travel.

By providing more opportunities for local clubs and organisations, the program goes a long way towards future-proofing grassroot sports, while ensuring those participating are equipped with the necessary skills to take their game to the next level.

Applications for this round close at 4pm on 12 October 2023. For more information and to apply for Sporting Club Grants Program visit

Minister for Community Sport Ros Spence said the funding was pivitol to help sporting clubs continue to thrive.

“Sport clubs are a real focal point for local communities, providing a place where locals can come together to play, volunteer, learn new skills and provide support for each other in good and tough times.”

“That’s why we’re supporting even more clubs with help towards training, volunteer and skills development as well as funds for uniforms, equipment and travel costs.”

“These grants provide a real boost for clubs and communities, allowing more Victorians to get involved in the sports they love.”
