A Victorian local football club was promised more than a million dollars in funding as part of the Female Facilities and Water Safety Stream program without ever applying for the grant.

The Member for Aston Alan Tudge reportedly promised the football club the funding, but the club president never filled out any forms.

The federal government is defending the decision to grant the football club the funds and said the scheme was not open to applications.
