When you submit your online application form, you will be sent an automated email saying that it has been successfully submitted and reminding you to submit your supporting documents by email or post.
All supporting documents must be received within two weeks of submission of the online form. We cannot begin to assess your application until we receive these documents and the sign-off sheet. Your application will be automatically withdrawn if we do not receive all of the supporting documents and will not be progressed any further.
Please note that we will not issue a reminder for you to send any additional supporting information. It is your responsibility to check that this information has been received by us.
Providing all the required information has been provided, your application will be logged and you will be sent an email from our administration team saying that your application will be going forward for assessment.
Once submitted to the Football Foundation all applications will be sent to the relevant County Football Association (CFA), who will do an initial assessment based on local need and regional priorities. The application will then be assessed by the Foundation, which will consider the CFA assessment. We will then present a report of every project to the Foundation's Chief Executive, who has delegated authority on behalf of our Board of Trustees, for consideration and approval.
