Funding Available to Improve Sports Facilities
Sport England has announced that the current round of its Inspired Facilities Fund will close on the 3rd November 2014.
Through the fund, Sport England will award capital grants to refurbish and improve up to 1,000 community sports clubs. Community and voluntary organisations, including sports clubs, parish and town councils can apply for grants worth between £20,000 and £50,000. At least 70% of the available funding available is set aside for these groups.
The remaining money is available to a wider group of organisations, including councils and schools, with grants of up to £150,000 available. If one of the groups benefitting from a planned project is disadvantaged young people aged under 18, applicants can apply for additional capital (to cover building costs) or revenue (day-to-day operating costs) funding from the Thomas Cook Children’s Charity.
