BCGBA announcement released today Tuesday 31st March:

Emergency £20m fund for clubs to apply for funding to support them during the COVID-19 outbreak.…/our…/community-emergency-fund

SPORT ENGLAND SAYS - As the country deals with coronavirus (Covid-19), we know sport and physical activity organisations are facing a hugely difficult period of time.

Our Community Emergency Fund aims to deliver immediate funding to those most in need. It's specifically targeted at organisations, including those not currently supported by us, who have a role in supporting the nation to be active but who are experiencing short term financial hardship or the ceasing of operations due to the ongoing crisis.

The types of organisations eligible include local sports clubs forced to close at short notice but who are facing ongoing costs around maintenance and utility bills, and voluntary and community sector organisations who deliver or enable sport and physical activity.

This £20 million fund is designed to complement other sources of funding from the government, such as funds targeted at small businesses.
