THE application process for Scottish Rugby’s Club Recovery Fund has opened, with a total sum of £500k to be made available for investment in clubhouses, grounds and facilities in order to help the grassroots game begin the process of trying to return to some sort of normality after more than a year of lockdown.

Three levels of award will be available to clubs: up to £2,500, up to £5,000, and up to £7,500. Clubs may apply for funding at all three levels, however only one award will be made.

If clubs have any specific concerns that require a larger amount of assistance than the three levels of award, they have been asked to write directly to Scottish Rugby to explain their individual circumstances, using the following email address: [email protected]

Applications must be received by 31st May 2021, and clubs will be notified of the outcome of their application no later than 18th June 2021. Claims for projects must be submitted no later than 31st December 2021.

There is no hard and fast criteria for the types of project allowed, with Scottish Rugby promising to review each application based on its own merits.

There will be no requirement for clubs to match Scottish Rugby’s contributions, meaning a grant may cover 100% of the project cost (excluding VAT).

Once the £500k cap for the Club Recovery Fund is met, there will be no further awards made.

  1. £500K – for “clubs”…. presumably excluding S6 entities, and ProTeams (if that description still applies)?

    Hey, ho – only £19.5 million left thereafter, from the SG pot.
