Sport England Improvement Fund Now Open for Applications
The Improvement Fund open until Wednesday 29th May 2013 (5pm) will award grants worth £150,000 to £500,000 into sustainable projects with a clear local need.
For Round 2, priority will be given to projects that can clearly demonstrate a significant reduction in the use of energy and/or water, and reduce waste in the construction and operation of the facility. In particular we will seek to support projects that can address one or more of the following themes and issues:
- Mitigating the impact of climate change
- Supporting the creation of and viability of multi-sport environments
- Providing an exemplar for future projects by the selective use of new technologies and improvements to the building fabric
To ensure the Improvement Fund can support as many projects as possible, we will require a minimum of 25 per cent cash partnership funding towards the total project costs. This can come from either the applicant body and/or third parties.
