Grass Pitch Maintenance Fund
The Grass Pitch Maintenance Fund is a £14m fund that provides eligible clubs and leagues with a tapered six-year grant to help them sustain pitches already at a 'good' level and enhance pitches that are either considered 'poor' or 'basic'.
The fund is a key part of the Football Foundation's Grass Pitch Improvement Programme - an ambition to deliver 20,000 quality grass pitches by 2030.
All applicants must have the required security of tenure and have received a PitchPower Pitch Assessment Report. Eligible applicants include:
- Grassroots clubs
- Charities (with an annual turnover of less than £500k)
- National League System Clubs Step 1-6 (only for pitches at the site that are used for community football)
