Holden Home Ground Advantage

Purpose: The Holden Home Ground Advantage project aims to help grass roots sport by giving local clubs the chance to upgrade their facilities.

Overview: Home Ground Advantage provides local sporting clubs with the chance to invest in clubrooms, sporting grounds, equipment or general facilities so they can continue to be a part of the Australian way of life.

Twice a year for 10 years, Holden will provide $250,000 worth of grants to sporting clubs who need assistance – that’s $500,000 every year for 10 years, and a total of $5 million.

Eligible clubs can apply for money through Home Ground Advantage for projects or equipment that will make life easier for members and supporters. For example, you might want to make improvements to your clubrooms, install new hot showers or a new scoreboard, or purchase new sporting equipment.

A club can apply for a grant of up to $10,000 (multiple grants of up to this amount will be awarded). In addition, Holden will offer one grant of up to $100,000 in each round. Clubs are welcome to submit separate applications for both grants.

Applications for the current round close on Monday August 31 2015.
