We provide grants for a number of different things:
Our Facilities scheme provides money to develop new or improve facilities for community benefit. These include changing rooms or clubhouses, grass or artificial pitches and multi-use games areas.
Small grants for small facilities projects are available via the Build the Game scheme. We aim to assess applications to this scheme much more quickly than applications for large facility grants.
We also provide money via Grow the Game for small projects that aim to increase participation by both players and volunteers in grass roots football by supporting the costs associated with providing new activity.
Our corporate partner programmes work with organisations, such as Barclays, that share our aims and objectives to deliver government targets across areas such as crime, social regeneration, health, participation, education and drugs.
The Football Stadia Improvement Fund provides money for clubs in the Football League and the National League System down to step 7 and below who want to improve their facilities.
The Youth Football Goalposts scheme provides grants for the new 9 v 9 format introduced as a result of the FA's Youth Development Review.
The Respect Equipment scheme offers 50% off equipment available as part of the FA's Respect programme.
The Mayor of London: Facility Fund is part of the Mayor's commitment to deliver a grass roots sporting legacy from the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The fund will contribute to the construction or refurbishment of sports facilities across the capital, and any not for profit organisation can apply.
The Premier League Community Facility Fund can be accessed by professional clubs through their community organisations and is managed and administered by the Football Foundation. The overall aim is to provide facilities aligned to professional club community-led inclusion schemes which will serve to increase sports participation and physical activity.
