For the full fund criteria - please read - Application Criteria – Sport England & RYA Together Fund (TF)
No single organisation will be awarded an accumulative total of more than £30k across the fund period (May 2020 to September 2023) (NB: the fund was previously called ‘Tackling Inequalities’). A maximum of £10k will remain for any single award. Sport England analysis indicates the average award is £3,500 and only a very small number 7% have reached the maximum award in any single phase. The RYA will seek to reflect this in our decision making and submissions to Sport England.
We are no longer inviting expressions of interest. For projects where an expression of interest has been approved, please submit your full project by no later than 0900 on the 7 March 2023
Please bare in mind when applying, all projects need to be delivered by the end of September 2023.
An RYA panel will consider all projects submitted against the Application Criteria. The panel will agree a number of projects for investment from the fund, and submit these to Sport England for final approval.
The panel will meet on a rolling basis, no less than once a month.
