How much can you apply for?
There is no minimum grant specified for this scheme. Eligible organisations can apply for up to 75% of eligible costs up to a maximum grant of £3,000.
Please note that in addition to the above grant assistance, the organisations maintaining grass sportsfields will be able to receive in-kind support from the Sport and Leisure Service towards the specialist ground maintenance works to their sportsfields i.e. verti-draining, fertiliser and weed spraying. These works must be agreed at the start of each year with the Sport and Leisure Service and will be subject to the availability of finance.
There is no minimum grant specified for this scheme. Eligible organisations can apply for up to 75% of eligible costs up to a maximum grant of £12,000 or up to the equivalent amount of their 2015/16 grant award, whichever is the lesser amount.
In recognition of the unique nature of these facilities and activities eligible organisations may apply for 2-stage grant payments to assist with cashflow purposes. An initial application may be made without submitting annual accounts and, assuming the application is approved, 50% of the grant award will be paid out on receipt of the signed grant acceptance. The remainder of the grant due will be held until certified annual accounts, and any other information required, is received and checked. Any previous underspends will be addressed with the second instalment.
