Sport England has updated the criteria for its Small Grants Programme and will again be accepting applications from sports clubs, facility operators and other sector organisations who have been impacted by the recent storms and flooding.
The available funding will be focused on areas worst affected and Sport England will prioritise sports and activities that need to return quickly. Spring and summer sports, or where activity is not scheduled to take place for several weeks, will be a lower priority.
The funding can be used for emergency costs to help restore sports facilities and activity venues.
Examples include securing buildings, skip hire to remove sediment and rubbish; minor electrical works to restore power and decontamination works or clearing of blocked drains.
Organisations applying will also need to confirm they have any relevant permissions required to carry out the work.
Previous recipients of emergency funding from us for flood or storm damage that are now applying again will need to show the steps they have taken to mitigate against further damage.
