Apply now for cricket grants
Tuesday 26 February 2019
Cricket clubs across the Ovens Valley electorate looking to upgrade their infrastructure or purchase new equipment can apply for two streams of funding from Cricket Australia.
Nationals Member for Ovens Valley Tim McCurdy is encouraging clubs to submit an application to the Australian Cricket Infrastructure Fund (ACIF) and the Grassroots Cricket Fund.
“The Grassroots Cricket Fund is open to clubs situated only in regional and rural areas, with a focus on supporting those in drought-impacted areas, while the ACIF is a larger stream for bigger projects,” Mr McCurdy said.
The Grassroots Cricket Fund offers up to $2500 for equipment, while the ACIF offers three categories, with a 50 per cent contribution required:
- Community Cricket Infrastructure – Minor: $1000 to $10,000;
- Community Cricket Infrastructure – Major: $10,000 to $50,000; and
- Strategic Infrastructure Grant: $50,000+.
“The Australian Cricket Infrastructure Fund is currently open and accessible to cricket clubs, schools and local councils seeking to develop and upgrade their grounds, pitches, practice nets, change rooms and pavilions,” Mr McCurdy said.
Both grant programs close on March 31 and more information is available at cricketvictoria.com.au/grants/
