The Victorian Government is boosting support for thousands of sports clubs, leagues, and associations affected by public health restrictions to curb the spread of coronavirus. Applications are open for the $10 million fourth round of the Community Sport Sector COVID-19 Survival Package, which to date has provided a lifeline for more than 6,300 clubs, with a further 430 leagues and associations and 75 state sporting associations, organisations, and regional academies also supported.
All Victorian clubs that have suffered losses due to the current lockdown will be eligible to apply, including clubs that have been awarded grants in earlier rounds of the program.
In the fourth round, clubs can apply for a grant of $1,500 and local leagues and associations $2,500 to cover costs and lost revenue associated with the cancellation of training, development programs and competition.
Previous recipients will be asked to respond to an email from Sport and Recreation Victoria by 29 October 2021 to receive their top-up grant.
