The program assists Victorian sport and active recreation organisations directly affected by the October 2022 Victorian floods. $5,000 one-off grants are available to assist in the replacement of items that have been lost, damaged or destroyed.
The Program is now open for applications and will stay open until 5pm on 13 January 2023 or until funding is exhausted.
On 1 November 2022, the Commonwealth and Victorian Governments announced further funding for community sport and active recreation organisations directly affected by the Victorian floods that commenced in October 2022.
The Business and Community Sport Flood Recovery Grants will help businesses, not-for-profit and community sport and active recreation organisations rebuild as quickly as possible.
The simplest and quickest way to have your Flood Recovery Grant processed and receive support is to first apply for the $5000 one-off Community Sport Emergency Flood Assistance Program.
Once approved for the $5,000 one-off grant, applicants can then apply for up to $50,000 through the Flood Recovery Fund. Funds can be used to cover expenses arising from significant direct damage to the organisation’s facility and its equipment.
Funding received under the Community Sport Emergency Flood Assistance Program will be included in the total grant amount.
Please note, Business Victoria is administering the Business and Community Sport Flood Recovery Grants.
To be eligible for the program, your club must have incurred direct damage due to the Victorian floods that commenced in October 2022 and be located within a local government area deemed eligible for assistance under the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangement.
