Last week the Commonwealth and Victorian Governments announced further funding for community sport and active recreation organisations directly affected by the Victorian floods.

The Business and Community Sport Flood Recovery Grants will help businesses, not-for-profit and community sport and active recreation organisations rebuild as quickly as possible.

The simplest and quickest way to have a Flood Recovery Grant application processed and receive support is to first apply for the $5000 one-off Community Sport Emergency Flood Assistance Program.

Once approved for the $5,000 one-off grant, applicants can apply for up to $50,000 through the Flood Recovery Fund. Funds can be used to cover expenses arising from significant direct damage to the organisation’s facility and its equipment.

Funding received under the Community Sport Emergency Flood Assistance Program will be included in the total grant amount.

Applications will be administered by Business Victoria.

Sports travel grants

THE Victorian Government is backing home-grown athletes with travel grants to help them compete at the top level.

Minister for Community Sport Ros Spence announced 109 grants worth more than $250,000 to assist athletes, teams, coaches and officials to accelerate their careers and take the next big step on the national stage.

The Victorian Government’s Athlete Pathway Travel Grants Program helps athletes, teams, coaches and officials with travel and accommodation costs associated with competing at regional, state and national levels.

Grants of up to $6000 are available for recognised state sporting associations, regional academies of sport and state sport bodies. Victorian sports clubs can apply for grants of up to $2000.

“We are helping our athletes and future champions by removing the barriers associated with travel and accommodation costs so they can focus on realising their sporting dreams,” Minister for Community Sport Ros Spence said.

“Travelling around Australia to compete at the highest level is a great achievement and this is about helping our rising athletes focus on competition and take the next big step.”

This round’s recipients include Baseball Victoria, which will use its $6000 grant to help the Victorian Aces travel and compete at the 2023 Australian Women’s Baseball Championship in South Australia next April.

The Athlete Pathway Travel Grants Program has awarded more than 1500 grants totalling more than $2.9 million to help teams and athletes reach their goals since 2015.

The program helps support the next generation of Victorian athletes to develop from community to national level.
