2010 Capital Grants Report

The Capital Grants project has continued throughout 2010.

By way of background the initiative was to utilise the capital available in the ownership of the Buckley’s building to provide a $100,000 building grant to each member club. These funds were sort to be matched by funding from local Councils or other  levels of government. This was a $1.2 million commitment by the league.

Projects completed so far include, Thomson. Werribee Centrals & East Geelong – Social Room Renovations, Bannockburn – Lighting and Ground improvements, Corio, Geelong West & North Geelong – Lighting Projects, Belmont Lions – Scoreboard and Decking and assistance with the Winchelsea Netball Courts project

Currently underway are power upgrades at Anakie, Social Room renovations at Inverleigh and a lighting upgrade at Winchelsea. Discussions are continuing around the renovation of change rooms at the West Oval with Geelong West and Council.

The program has currently contributed over $760,000 into the clubs facilities but has had a net return of close to $2 million so far.
