Inclusion Support Grants (75% of Club Fees or up to $200)
Funding supports the inclusion of school aged Frankston residents up to the age of 18 years in disadvantaged circumstances to participate in a sport by paying their fees directly to the Frankston municipality sports club (e.g. cricket, football, netball, basketball, tennis, etc.). Applicants apply to Council and if successful, applicants must register with the sporting club within 8 weeks. Grants are paid directly to the club on receipt of invoice. Applicants must hold a Health Care Card or Pension Concession Card. Assistance can be provided for more than one family member per financial year. The Miscellaneous Grants Committee may consider applications for other recreational activities on a case by case basis.
