The Victorian State Government’s Change Our Game Community Activation Grants program has been launched as an initiative towards funding one-off community based events that celebrate the role of women and girls in sport and provide a level playing field.
The program, featuring grants of up to $10,000, is available for community sport and recreation organisations where they will be supported in delivering events to promote gender equality. This means it’s inclusive for everyone, and activities do not have to be women-only events – it is open to the entire community so men and boys get the same opportunities as women and girls.
The funds that are on offer are below:
- Participation stream up to $5,000
- Organisation or club training/development up to $5,000
- Showcasing achievements up to $10,000
The grant is in its second round and is part of the Government’s $7.2 million investment for the Change Our Game initiative. The program has so far provided 155 grants that support community sport and recreation organisations. This is able to get required funds to host events, ranging from come-and-try days to community forums and educational sessions.
Any community level organisations who deliver sport and active recreation programs across Victoria are eligible to apply. However, those who received a grant from Round 1 of the 2020/2021 Change our Game Community Activation grant are not able to apply.
The Round 2 grants opened on April 14 2021, with applications to be submitted by the closing date of May 12 2021 at 5pm.
