The FA, via its investment into The Football Foundation is looking to support projects that will make a difference to football clubs and the community they serve.
As ever, the demand is expected to be exceptionally high and will exceed the financial resources that are available. However, Lincolnshire FA, The FA and The Football Foundation will continue to offer advice and support in relation to facility projects where it is considered to be of benefit to football and in addition, will try to identify any other relevant funding sources or seek to work with you to reduce overall project costs.
The first step is to complete and submit The FA’s on-line Football Facility Enquiry Form: http://county-fa-eoi.thefa.me.uk/?cfa=28.
Even if you have previously completed an EOI Form please submit this form to provide the most relevant and up to date information. All EOI's will be scored upon the window closing on Friday 27th November 2015.
Scoring comprises of a number of elements including FA Charter Standard, number of existing teams based on site, financial sustainability and proposed project requirements. Please ensure your project aims are realistic.
All projects will be contacted in December 2015 with The FA’s and County FA’s comments. Guidance and advice will be provided where appropriate. The higher scoring projects will be invited in for an informal presentation to be held on Friday 15th January 2016. Priority projects will then be identified and will be asked to work up their applications throughout 2016 with full backing and support from all parties.
