This scheme is separate to the Sports Club Resilience Fund, which is delivered through National Governing Bodies.
This scheme is designed to support sports clubs that do not have the finances to implement COVID-19 related hygiene and social distancing protocols. The COVID-19 Club Small Grants can be used to support COVID-19 related expenditure dating for 2021 .
