Applications are now open for the fourth round of the Community Sport Sector COVID-19 Survival Package.  

In this round, clubs can apply for $1,500 and associations and leagues can apply for $2,500. Funding can be used for ongoing fixed costs, essential salary costs and any other costs that keep organisations viable and to purchase equipment and cleaning supplies necessary to function in a COVIDSafe manner once restrictions ease. 

Who can apply? 

Community sport and active recreation organisations operating within Victoria that have not received funding from this program in any of the first three rounds can apply. This includes not-for-profit and for-profit associations, leagues and clubs that meet all the eligibility criteria. For more details on eligibility please read the program guidelines.  

Applications will close at 5pm, 29 October 2021 (or until all available funding has been exhausted). 

Top-up payments 

Grant recipients from the first three rounds will be considered for an automatic top-up payment and do not need to submit a new application. Top-up grants of $2,500 are available for associations and leagues and $1,500 for clubs. 

Sport and Recreation Victoria will email organisations that are eligible for a top-up payment by the end of October 2021. To check if your organisation has previously received a grant, visit the Sport and Recreation Victoria website
