The Participation Initiative Grant encourages the delivery of innovative community projects that increase and sustain inclusive participation in sport and active recreation in the Latrobe Valley.

Grants of up to $75 000 will be made available to deliver new and innovative programs that increase participation in organised and informal sport and active recreation, particularly amongst people that are currently underrepresented.

Active recreation has many positive impacts on both physical and mental health, however not everyone benefits equally from existing opportunities to participate.  There are many population groups who are underrepresented in sport and active recreation.  This grants program aims to reduce the barriers and increase the opportunities for active participation for these groups.

This grant application is currently closed.
