Sport England’s Small Grants Programme is back for cricket clubs to apply to – with awards of up to £15,000.
The fund is open until the end of June 2023 and its funding focus is once again on ‘providing sport and physical activities for people who may be less physically active’.
Applications are for between £300 and £15,000, with more than one application allowed – but cricket clubs can only be awarded £15,000 or less in any 12-month period.
It’s a fantastic opportunity for cricket or sports clubs to read the guidance and see how it could apply to their projects and needs.
The competition will be fierce (not just in cricket) so while your club should think before you jump in and apply, speed is also of the essence.
Here in Yorkshire, contact YCB staff in your area for advice and support; they know Sport England applications inside out.
