The OFA Small Grants Scheme, which re-invests discipline income back to our member clubs and leagues, returns for its eighth season and is now open to applications.
Since the scheme began in 2010 we have awarded over £64,000 to 63 club projects covering a wide range of areas from pitch improvement to portable floodlights.
Last year we granted over £14,000 to 18 clubs who raised an impressive £42,665 in response.

Following the growing popularity of the scheme over the past few seasons two key changes have been made to the 2018/19 round to ensure as many of our members benefit as possible:
1) Applicants are still able to apply for up to 50% of the cost of their project but the grant award limit will now be £500
2) Member clubs and leagues are only allowed to apply for a maximum of £500 every two years (1st April – 31st March). This must be through a single grant application.
The Small Grants Fund is administered by the OFA Finance Group.
