Victorian recreational fishing clubs are now eligible to apply for $2,000 grants to promote membership and update facilities.
The ‘Stronger Fishing Clubs’ grants program opened today for 12 months, and is a key part of the Andrews Labor Government’s Target One Million election commitment, aiming to get more people fishing, more often.
Fishing clubs are often the first point of call for beginner anglers, and that’s why the Labor Government is throwing its support behind them.
All Victorian fishing clubs that were operational as of 1 January 2015 can apply.
Favourable consideration will be given to clubs that propose to use the grant for membership drives, introductory fishing days, open days or marketing of their club with flyers, signage and website development.
Consideration will also be given to applications for the purchase of club equipment, renovations or repairs to clubhouses and facilities.

Quotes attributable to the Minister for Agriculture Jaala Pulford “We’re creating better fishing opportunities to attract more visitors to fishing destinations across the state, boosting local economies and supporting local businesses.”
“The Andrews Labor Government is investing in recreational fishing, to encourage Victorians to spend more quality time outdoors enjoying this great pastime.” “With more people fishing more often, we will be well on our way to reach one million anglers by 2020.”
