The Funding for Leagues scheme, for the leagues outside the National League System or below Step W4 in the Women’s Pyramid of Football, assists leagues to purchase new computers, computer-related equipment or office equipment and will be operating again in season 2015-16.
An FAQ sheet which lists the criteria on the scheme can be downloaded by clicking here and each league should refer to the sheet when applying for a grant as there are several changes in comparison to last season.
It should be noted that any league which received grant aid in the 2014-15 season will not be eligible to apply for funding this season.
A list of items considered to be eligible for financial assistance is included on the FAQ sheet, together with details of the ‘Priority’ and ‘Low Priority’ categories.
The amount of grant is dependent on the number of registered teams each league has and will be based on £10 per team with a minimum grant of £350 and a maximum grant of £1,000 available.
If a league has 150 teams or more they can apply for grant aid up to a maximum of £1,200. The grant aid amount is capped at a maximum of up to £600 for a Computer/Laptop Computer (including MS Office 365 and Anti Virus Software one year subscription) and a maximum of £450 for a tablet.
