Sporting clubs in Eastern Melbourne are now able to apply for grants to establish more opportunities for women and girls to participate in sport both on and off the field.
The 2019-20 Change Our Game Community Activation Grants Program supports the delivery of sector initiatives that bring together communities to showcase and celebrate the role of women and girls and further gender equality through sport and recreation.
Now in its third year, the program has so far enabled more than 95 community sport and recreation organisations to host events ranging from come-and-try days to community forums and educational sessions.
Member for Eastern Victoria, Harriet Shing encouraged local sport and recreation clubs to identify events and initiatives that promote gender equality and apply for the grants, with up to $10,000 per grant available.
“Women and girls continue to lead from the front, and we want to see even more across the state apply for these grants to take their initiatives to the next level,” Ms Shing said.
