There are a few key points we would like to make to clubs at this stage:

  1. Prioritising – Only applications from club's that are actively engaged with one or more ECB programmes: All Stars, Dynamos, or Women’s and Girls’ Cricket and Disability Cricket will be considered.
  2. Local management – The County Grants Fund will be administered locally, with an Independent Review Panel for award decisions.
  3. Scale of support – The County Grants Fund is provided by the ECB and has set the priority for supporting the recreational game and the ambitions of it's Inspiring Generations Strategy. There are positive levels of investment attributed to the fund for Cornwall. However, there are still finite levels of funding available to us in year one which is why we must work closely with cricket clubs to identify appropriate projects which deliver strong outcomes.
