Bass MP Jordan Crugnale has welcomed the release of the second round of sporting vouchers for kids.
Vouchers worth up to $200 are available for the state’s most vulnerable families to put towards the cost of their kids playing the sports they love.
Ms Crugnale today encouraged eligible families to take advantage of the second round of the $21 million Get Active Kids Voucher Program, which is rolling out 100,000 vouchers over four rounds.
A Victorian first, the program provides sport vouchers to help kids from Victorian families with the cost of membership and registration fees, sports equipment and uniforms.
To be eligible kids need to be 4 to 18 years old, a resident in Victoria, named on a current Australian Government Health Care Card or Pensioner Concession Card and also named on a valid Australian Government Medicare Card at the time of application.
The program is also supporting sport clubs and active recreation providers broaden their memberships and providing them with additional revenue to help recover from the impacts of Covid-19.
“Our local sports and recreation clubs are at the heart of our community, bringing people together and creating healthier, happier, and more connected communities,” Ms Crugnale said.
Applications for vouchers in round two of the program close 9 July 2021.
