Sport England funding programmes generate huge response

From Sport England: 

Applications for grants from two of Sport England’s new funding programmes, the Rural Communities themed round and the Innovation Fund, are now being assessed.

Both funds were substantially oversubscribed and all eligible applications are being judged on a competitive basis.

"Receiving this level of interest and applications is great news for both funds,” said Phil Smith, Sport England’s Director of Sport. “It gives us a real opportunity for rigorous assessment – ensuring we support projects that will deliver the greatest possible return for community sport.

"Where we identify good ideas that we are unable to fund this time, we will work to connect applicants with other organisations or funding bodies who may be able to help."

The results of both assessments will be announced in the Autumn.
