Grants are available to a variety of organisations to support grassroots sports activity at a local level in England.
The Community Sport Activation Fund is a £40 million Lottery revenue fund developed to support grassroots activity at a very local level. The Fund was designed in response to demand and will aim to unlock potential and resources. Sport England will not prescribe how projects will deliver but will invest in what works best in different areas, based on local evidence.
The Community Sport Activation Fund aims to do the following:
Grants of between £50,000 and £250,000 are available. In exceptional circumstances Sport England may give grants in excess of £250,000 where a project can deliver significant increases in participation.
Groups may only apply for amounts in excess of £250,000 if Sport England has given written permission.
Normally projects are funded for up to three years, but applications that require funding for a longer period of up to five years will be considered if an exceptionally strong case can be made.
The Round Three deadline is 27 January 2014.
There will be five rounds in total.
