Female participation in sports grants

Sports clubs in the City of Whittlesea can apply for grants to encourage the participation of women in sports at all levels in the municipality.

About our Female Participation in Sports Grants

Participating in sports offers many health and wellbeing benefits, as well as increasing self-esteem, interpersonal networks, social inclusion and community connections.

Despite these benefits, there are low rates of participation of women and girls in all levels of sport.

Our aim is to assist clubs to develop projects that promote and encourage equal participation of women and girls in sports across the municipality.

Grants of up to $2000 (not including GST) are available to sporting clubs to create or enhance opportunities and projects aimed at increasing female participation in sport - as players, coaches, umpires and in leadership roles.

Our 2018 Female Participation Sports Grants have closed

This year's round of Female Participation in Sports Grants have now closed. Successful applicants will be announced in July 2018.

Stay tuned for more information on when they will open again.
