The Grow the Game grant scheme is provided and administered by the Football Foundation to stimulate and sustain increased participation in football at a grass-roots level. The funding is for the creation of new football teams and coaching qualifications.

The funding is for projects that use football to increase participation by both players and volunteers.

Grants of £1,500 are available to support creation of new football teams.

Organisations are able to receive a grant of £1,500 per new team created over two or three years with financial support being reduced in the second or third year of the project.

Application deadline: 29 March 2018.
