Applications open – Vic Government’s Shade Grants Program

Applications are now open for the Victorian Government’s Shade Grants Program.

The Shade Grants Program is administered by the Department of Health and Human Services.

The aim of the Program is to reduce Victorians’ exposure to UV radiation by increasing shade in public places across the state and by promoting uptake of sun protective practices.

The Program is offered once a year, across two grant categories:

  • School Shade Grants Program 
  • Community Shade Grants Program.

Funding under the Program is highly competitive with one in four grant applications successfully awarded a grant in previous rounds. Based on this, it is expected that more applications will be received than can be funded.

The program commenced in 2015 and has awarded 1,325 grants totalling over $12 million to date.

We encourage Softball Victoria Clubs and Associations to apply for funding.
