Nationals Member for Euroa Annabelle Cleeland is encouraging all local Football and Netball clubs to apply to for the 2023-24 Country Football and Netball Program grants.
Grants of up to $250,000 are available to make more sport infrastructure developments possible including court and oval lighting upgrades, changeroom developments and new pavilions for local clubs and communities.
“Local sporting clubs like Longwood Football Netball Club, Seymour Football Netball Club, and Murchison Football Netball Club are just some of the many local organisations that have long been campaigning for much needed upgrades to their facilities,” Ms Cleeland said.
“Sadly, many of these clubs missed out on crucial funding during this year’s budget announcement, so I encourage all clubs to apply for funding to make sure they can make their upgrades a reality.”
Government documents revealed that of the 102 community sporting clubs and precincts that were provided funding in the budget for new and upgraded infrastructure and equipment, 77 were in Labor aligned areas, leaving hundreds of clubs across the state without desperately needed funding for upgrades.
Applications close on 9 October 2023. For more information on the program and to apply, visit https://sport.vic.gov.au/grants-and-funding/our-grants/country-football-and-netball-program.
