One off grants up to £9,000 may be available to organisations through to the spring. Grants may be available to organisations that pay business rates and were required to close as a result of Covid-19 restrictions.

 

Additional grant funding for organisations that do not pay business rates may be available from local councils.  Each Council has the freedom to determine the eligibility criteria.

 

Note that it may take time for your local Authority to update the information on their website and provide details on how to access grant funding.

 

NRA affiliated Clubs, particularly those that have premises are encouraged to review the Government advice and check with their local authority to see if the organisation qualifies for financial support.
