COWWARR Football-Netball Club and Sale City Football-Netball Club will benefit following successful grant applications to Round 2 of the Victorian Sporting Club Grants Program.

Member for Gippsland South, Danny O’Brien said he was delighted to see Gippsland South sporting clubs listed among the 400 clubs from across the state that were granted up to $4000 to help remove barriers to participation in their respective sports, including covering things like uniform or travel costs.

“The cost-of-living crisis is leaving many families facing tough choices, and many are having to withdraw from sporting activity as the cost of uniforms and memberships fees prove difficult to manage,” he said.

“These are all wonderful local clubs and I am thrilled to see that this money will be put to great use in our local community.”

O’Brien said the state government had recently announced a new round of the Get Active Kids Voucher Program, which provides eligible Victorian families up to $200 towards the cost of participating in sport.
