Following a highly competitive first round that resulted in 22 community sporting organisations receiving funding, applications are now open for the second round of the Victorian Government’s Change Our Game Community Activation Grant program.

The program is designed to support the delivery of initiatives that bring together communities and showcase women and girls, furthering gender equality throughout the Victorian sport and active recreation sector.

Member for Broadmeadows, Frank McGuire, MP, is strongly encouraging community sporting bodies to apply for the grant and celebrate women and girls throughout the electorate.

“This program will enable local clubs to further deliver programs that will drive positive change within our community”, Mr McGuire said.

Grants of up to $5,000 will be available to eligible clubs and community groups across Victoria and will establish opportunity for women and girls at the grassroots level to enable them to achieve their full potential both on and off the field.

This new funding joins the already extensive Change Our Game grants portfolio that works alongside initiatives including the record breaking $14 million Female-Facilities Fund and the $380,000 already committed to the Change Our Game Scholarships and the Change Our Game Champions program.

Change Our Game Community Activation Grants are now open and more information is available at www.changeourgame.vic.gov.au.
