Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Basketball Seed Grant
Basketball Victoria (BV) is committed to reconciliation and the ongoing inclusion of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people into basketball through member associations and environments that are welcoming and culturally sensitive.
As an organisation, BV are implementing their inaugural Reconciliation Action Plan or ‘RAP’ that will be registered with Reconciliation Australia. The ‘RAP’ will provide a framework and an accountable structure for BV as their relationship with the Australian Indigenous community continues to grow.
Basketball Victoria is offering grants of up to $1,500 to assist in creating opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Victorians. In total there are 10 grants available. This program is an investment into local communities to build and sustain targeted participation opportunities. Participation is not restricted to playing. Participation includes coaching, officiating as a referee or score table as a technical official and volunteering on committees or boards.
Applications close on Friday 3rd August 2018. Read more here.
