Following the Victorian Government’s announcement about the gradual resumption of community sport, VicHealth announced the recipients of the latest round of Active Club Grant recently.
VicHealth’s Active Club Grants make a significant contribution to the Victorian community by improving the health of less active Victorians. The grants aim to provide more opportunities to safely participate in sport, with a particular focus on people who otherwise would not get these opportunities.
This round, 153 community sport clubs, including nine tennis clubs, throughout Victoria will share almost $500,000 of funding.
