Decision process

Once your application has been submitted, the Grant Officer for your region will complete an initial assessment of the application, ensuring that all information has been received. If we need any more information we will contact you, but this may mean the decision process takes longer.

We then undertake a full assessment and produce a report on the application. The report on your project is presented to the Chair of the Premier League and The FA Facilities Fund Panel and the Football Foundation's Chief Executive for consideration.

You will be advised via letter whether your application has been successful, or not.

As an indication, from the time we have received all information and logged your application, it will take us approximately 9 weeks to make a decision.

Before you can start any works, you will need to have returned the grant acceptance form and discharged any pre-construction conditions detailed in the grant offer letter.
