The Community Sport Sector COVID-19 Survival Package provides grants to support the operational viability of community sport and active recreation organisations impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The package builds upon the Victorian Government’s Experience Economy Survival Package which provided urgent support to help a range of key attractions, organisations and associations ride out the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and help them reboot, rebound and recover.
