Victorian local councils are invited to apply for a local area marketing grant to promote VicHealth’s highly successful This Girl Can – Victoria campaign, celebrating women who are all kinds of active. Launched in 2018, the This Girl Can – Victoria campaign has already inspired more than 396,000 Victorian women to get active. 

Grants of $10,000-$15,000 (excluding GST) are available for councils to promote the campaign to women in their local community, to offer beginner-friendly activity opportunities as part of This Girl Can Week and to support facility operators to help women and girls get active.
