This program complements and builds upon the Victorian Government’s health promotion work via the Victorian Public Health & Wellbeing Plan, Healthy Together Victoria and the Sports Injury Prevention Taskforce Final Report.

Priority is given to applications from clubs/organisations who can demonstrate that:

  • cost is likely to be a significant barrier to sport and active recreation due to relative socioeconomic disadvantage;
  • are committed to reducing injuries which prevent people from leading a more active lifestyle.

For further information, please read the Funding Guidelines.
