The County Grants Fund aims to support affiliated cricket clubs to create welcoming environments, provide enhanced facilities and playing opportunities, and to help clubs tackle the impact of climate change.
Who can apply?
The scheme is open to all ECB affiliated cricket clubs in England and Wales.
What type of projects are eligible?
The ECB Emergency Loan Scheme aims to support affiliated cricket cubs during the COVID-19 crisis by providing funding to assist clubs to cover any shortfall in essential day-to-day running and maintenance costs until normal recreational cricket activity can be resumed.
Clubs affiliated to their County Cricket Board in 2019 or 2020.
ECB will consider applications for costs for a period of up to 12 months. Clubs should calculate estimated shortfall in the following expenditure areas:
Club with a junior section (including All Stars Cricket / Dynamos Cricket) between £1,000 and £5,000.
Club with an adult section only between £1,000 and £3,000.
Clubs apply by clicking here.
Before applying, it is highly recommended clubs read the Emergency Loan Scheme guidance notes.
For any cricket club, planning for the future is essential to ensuring the sustainability of the club. Our staff are on hand to help with any guidance on any area of recreational cricket. As an affiliated club to Sussex Cricket, we ask that your club completes a Club Development Plan, which will enable us to better support your club and aid us in pointing you in the right direction to achieve your priorities.
Please be aware that access to any ECB and SCF funding is reliant on your club having submitted a Club Development Plan to your Territory Manager.
You can find the template for the Club Development Plan here.
The Spen Cama Charitable Cricket Trust is currently closed to applications. Please contact your Territory Manager for details of projects that may require specific funding for help and guidance.
