The Victorian Government’s $300,000 African and Pasifika Youth Sports Program provides grants to support African and Pasifika young people aged 12 to 25 to participate in sports competitions and events.

The grants are available to informal sports teams with young African and Pasifika members, supported through local government and community organisations.

Sport is a vital social connection and participation tool that offers mentoring, leadership and career development opportunities to young people. These grants help to ensure that cost is not a barrier to participation in sporting activities.

Funded programs must be delivered between 1 July and 31 December 2021. Funding is available in two streams, with up to $2,000 available for equipment and uniforms and up to $30,000 to support participation in competitions and events.

The grants are open until Wednesday 19 May 2021.
