There are two sports funding tiers available to apply for an Active Club Grant. You can also submit two separate applications – one for each tier – but your club can only be successful once.
Applications are to be submitted online. This can be done using the Apply section below.
Tier 1: Up to $3000
This tier is open to all eligible clubs across Victoria. This tier is where the majority of available funds will be allocated, allowing VicHealth to support a wide range of clubs across the state.
Tier 2: Between $3001 and up to $10,000 (limited to 12 successful grants per round)
Club applying for $10,000.00 need to demonstrate at least one of the following:
- A membership base of over 200; or
- The ability to reach a large number of Victorians through a program or multiple teams; or
- Implementing new initiatives due to significant demand resulting from population growth; or
The funding will help breaking a major cost barrier for running a participation initiative that will benefit a specific underrepresented population group who experience greater barriers to physical activity, e.g. Aboriginal Victorians, people with disability, culturally and linguistically diverse, LGBTIQ+, remote or isolated communities, etc.
If we really like your $10,000 application, but feel it’s more suitable for our $3,000 funding tier, we may transfer your application to Tier 1, and reduce or remove requested items to a maximum of $3000.00. You will have the opportunity to accept or decline this proposed funding.
