About Leicestershire and Rutland Playing Fields Association Starter Grants

Leicestershire and Rutland Playing Fields Association currently offer small scale grants of up to £500 to eligible clubs across the region. Applicants must be in our area of geographical coverage and be current members of the PFA.

What can the grant be used for?

Grants can be used for anything that encourages the provision, improvement, retention and use of outdoor recreational space. This might include buying equipment or kit, coaching course costs or starting a new sport or team at your club. We also welcome new ways of encouraging a different group of people to take part in sport. However, the funding can't be used for retrospectively or for existing projects, personal equipment and travel costs.

Is there a minimum or maximum grant?

There is no minimum amount that may be claimed so even small projects can be funded. However, LRPFA will not normally award more than £500, subject to a maximum of 50% of total project cost.

Who can apply for a grant?

Applications can only be made by members of the LRPFA. You also must be a properly constituted sports club or association that resides in Leicestershire or Rutland. New clubs are welcome to apply.
