Community Shield Distribution Fund

Following The FA’s distribution of last year’s 1966 fund to celebrate the anniversary of England’s World Cup win, they have made two grants of £2500 available to clubs affiliated to Essex County FA.

To be eligible for the grant, we ask that clubs:

• create an outreach programme for their club to engage with the wider community e.g. schools, organised youth groups

• engage with groups who are typically are hard to reach and provide recreational football opportunities

• increase their community presence

Please be aware that we only have two grants available and we will be unable to provide feedback to unsuccessful applicants. If we feel we can support your project in another way your local Football Development Officer will make contact. To apply please fill out the attached form and send it back to The deadline for applications is Friday 21st April.

Kind regards

Lana Gillard
