Female Inclusion in Sport Grants

The Female Inclusion in Sport Grant Program, co-funded by the City of Whittlesea and DPV Health, has been redeveloped in 2021.

About our Female Inclusion in Sport Grants

The Sporting field is often regarded as a space where differences are put aside in the pursuit of fair play and “having a go”. But when it comes to fairness, statistics show that women and girls are underrepresented in sport, both as players and leaders. In fact, only half of Victorian women are sufficiently active.

Grants of up to $3,000 (ex GST) are available to support local sporting clubs to undertake projects that are accessible and safe for women and girls from all experiences and backgrounds and create a positive impact or breakdown barriers for participation (as players, coaches, umpires and in leadership roles).

Key dates

The 2021 Female Inclusion in Sport Grant Program will open on Monday 8 February and close on Monday 31 May 2021.

Applications will be assessed at the start of each month (April – June) and applicants notified of their outcome shortly thereafter.
