LEEDS – COVID-19 SPORT EQUIPMENT GRANT

LCC-CovidGrant

Application deadline extended:

To help support Leeds clubs the Leeds Sports Federation equipment grant has been revamped into the “Leeds Covid-19 Sport Equipment Grant”

The grant is now open and aimed at clubs who have a taken a serious financial hit during the lock down, requiring assistance in starting up again now the government has relaxed the guidelines on sport and recreation.

We’ve made a few changes to the existing LSF grant to help speed up the process and stretch the funding to help as many clubs as possible:

  • The application form is now smaller and in an electronic format.
  • The grant maximum has been cut from £500 to £300 to allow us to distribute more grants to more clubs.
  • You will need to forward to us by email your latest accounts and a current bank balance by email as supporting information to sport.club.development@leeds.gov.uk
  • If successful you will receive the grant hopefully within 7 days of confirmation, you will then be asked to forward the invoice once you have purchased the equipment.
  • Priority will be given to clubs who are located in areas of higher deprivation, or those who are offering activity that helps to increase participation of under-represented (in physical activity) including those with a disability, of a BAME community, and females.
