Constituency questions – 2018–19 sporting club grants program
Mr J. BULL (Sunbury) (12:03:54) — (14 928) My question is for the Minister for Sport. Minister, what is the latest information on applications from the Rupertswood Cricket Club and Sunbury School of Calisthenics to the Andrews Labor government’s 2018–19 sporting club grants program? Such grants provide clubs with up to $1000 for new uniforms and equipment, up to $2000 for training, coaches, officials and volunteers and up to $5000 to improve operational effectiveness. The sporting club grants program is part of the Labor government’s commitment to make sport more accessible and inclusive, increase local participation, stimulate local economies, build sustainable sport and recreation and promote volunteer opportunities. I want to take this opportunity to thank the Rupertswood Cricket Club and Sunbury School of Calisthenics, along with all of my fantastic local sporting clubs. Sport is a great way of participating in your local community. I ask the minister for an update on those applications.
