Sporting grants to benefit local clubs

East Gippsland sporting clubs have the opportunity to update their facilities under the Victorian Government’s most recent grants stream.

The Nationals Member for Gippsland East, Tim Bull, has advised of the opening of a new round of applications for the $100 million Community Sports Infrastructure Fund.

“This fund will help East Gippsland clubs update tired grounds and build facilities they need,” he said.

“These grants have invested more than $14m towards 120 projects, and have helped revitalise cricket pitches, install women’s change rooms, improve courts, build fields and develop better pools.”

Cricket grounds can also be upgraded under the initiative, while it will help aquatic centres, minor facilities works and planning grants.

The Community Sports Infrastructure Fund also includes a $10m fund for women’s change rooms.

“I encourage sporting club representatives to visit for more information about the grants and contact their local council to apply for funding,” Mr Bull said.
