Posted: Thu, 05 Nov 2020 14:31
Sport England's Return to Play, Small Grants Programme has reopened today with 3 positive changes. Sport England has posted the following update:
'Update: fund criteria
Following a brief pause of this fund to review the impact of the lockdown restrictions that all of England is now under, we've made three changes to the fund criteria to ensure we better help clubs and organisations:
- We've relaxed the timeframe in which activity must be up and running to 'within six weeks from the point of the national or local restrictions being lifted to allow your activity to return'
- Applicants that support people from IMD areas 1-3 will be able to apply for up to £2,000 to cover running costs (for example rent, utilities and maintenance) as part of an overall return to play plan
- We'll take a broader and more flexible approach for the types of projects which can be supported.
Applications submitted before the brief pause will be assessed and applicants will be able to review their plans in light of the changes to the funding criteria.'
