Member for Morwell Russell Northe has encouraged Latrobe Valley’s football and netball clubs and umpiring organisations to apply for funds from the latest round of Country Football and Netball Program grants.
“Grants up to $100,000 are available to help clubs with improvements like change room upgrades, court refurbishments, ground resurface works or lighting installation,” Mr Northe said.
“The Country Football and Netball Program helps our local football and netball clubs make improvements that mean our communities can continue to play the sports we love.
“High quality sporting facilities encourage more Latrobe Valley communities to be more active, more often.
“As well as encouraging participation in football and netball, this grants program supports local jobs and businesses during the project works.
“I strongly encourage our local clubs to contact their local council about timelines for lodging an Expression of Interest for this latest grants round.”
Applications close on Thursday 11 February 2016. For more information or to apply online, visit www.sport.vic.gov.au/grants-and-programs/country-football-netball-program
