CitiPower Canteen Grant recipients announced for 2023-24

Cricket Victoria and CitiPower are pleased to announce the clubs that have received record funding through the 2023-24 Canteen Grants program.

Seventeen Victorian cricket clubs will receive funding through the program this year – totalling $81,000 in grants – with clubs able to apply for grants of up to $5,000 each.

The program is now in its sixth year, having commenced in 2018.

This year’s grants bring the total funding provided to $361,000, distributed between 86 local cricket clubs.

There were over 100 cricket clubs that submitted grant applications this year.

Over the life of the grants program, clubs have been able to use the funding to support a range of necessary upgrades, including electrical upgrades, new refrigerators, and oven replacements.

“With over $80,000 invested in the latest round of this program, which is nearly a 50% increase on the previous year, we’re seeing real benefits and safety improvements for players and volunteers alike,” said CitiPower’s Scott Russell, General Manager Corporate Affairs, Strategy & Customer Group.

“We all know how essential canteens are to local clubs, but it’s also the one place where electrical safety risks are most likely to be found. So far, we’ve awarded grants to 86 local cricket clubs, clubs who have now directly benefited from the program to improve their electrical infrastructure.”

Cricket Victoria CEO, Nick Cummins, said the program continues to go from strength-to-strength.

“We continue to see record levels of interest in this program since its inception. Ultimately the Canteen Grants help to ensure clubs can continue to provide a safe environment with appropriate equipment or appliances. It makes a real difference in assisting clubs, volunteers and communities,” said Cummins.

“CitiPower have invested a record $81,000 in the Grant program in this year alone, supporting 17 clubs. Over the six years the Canteen Grants program has been running, more $300,000 has been provided to Victorian cricket clubs to upgrade their facilities, which is an outstanding result.

“We thank our major partner, CitiPower, for their continued and generous support of Victorian cricket and community clubs in our state.”
