Nepean electorate community sports grants

Nepean electorate community sports grants

Mr BRAYNE (Nepean) (19:20): (6445) The action I seek is for the Minister for Community Sport to update my community on the amount of funding that community sports clubs in Nepean have received to date under the sporting club grants program. The Victorian government recently announced that the sporting club program is once again open for applications. Year after year this program has helped provide funding for grassroots sports clubs right across Victoria. Whether it is assisting organisations to purchase sports uniforms and equipment or making improvements to club venues, these grants go a long way to supporting community grants right across the state.

Investing in community sport is vital in my community. Just in the last fortnight I was pleased to announce that two local sports clubs, the Dromana Football Netball Club and the Dromana Cricket Club, have recently received $200 000 and $100 000 respectively in grant funding for new netball courts and new cricket nets. It is so exciting for Dromana. These investments will allow these clubs to update their facilities and get more locals back out playing the sports they love. So I look forward to the minister updating my community on the total amount of funding that sporting clubs in my community have received under this program.

The SPEAKER: Before calling the minister, I will just remind members that they are to use correct titles and not members’ first and last names when they are raising matters for ministers. I ask the Minister for Planning to respond to a matter raised by the Manager of Opposition Business and to refer other matters.
