Club Capacity and Workforce Development Grants - 2016-17
Applications for these grants closed on September 4, 2016.
National Community Facilities Funding Scheme (NCFFS)
The National Community Facilities Funding Scheme (NCFFS) has been established by Cricket Australia to support the ongoing development of community cricket facilities across Australia. Given the direct and enduring impact that facilities have on cricket participation, Cricket Australia has identified the need to work collaboratively with funding partners to increase investment.
In Victoria, the fund is open to all clubs, associations and regions across Australia that are affiliated with Cricket Victoria. The fund is also open to local councils working with their local cricket clubs and associations.
Applications close at 12 midnight on Sunday, October 30, 2016 and must be submitted via the online application form here.
Victorian Government Community Shade Grants Programs
Australia has the highest rates of skin cancer in the world, with two in three Australians diagnosed with skin cancer by the age of 70. However, skin cancer is a largely preventable disease, and the provision of well planned, quality shade is an important strategy in reducing ultraviolet (UV) over-exposure.
The Community Shade Grants Program increases the availability of shade in public places where Victorians spend time outdoors, benefiting community spaces such as parks, playgrounds, sport facilities and other community settings. There are three grant bands available:
Grant Band 1: up to $5,000
Grant Band 2: $5,000-$20,000
Grant Band 3: $20,000-$50,000
The grants are open to a range of community based organisations including sports clubs, local councils, not for profit organisations and other community groups to apply, and will fund new built shade, purchase of portable shade, planting of natural shade and repair of existing shade.
Guidelines and online expressions of interest can be found here.
Applications close at 5.00pm on Thursday, October 6, 2016.
