Protecting Playing Fields - Round 3
The funding round closes on the 9th July 2012.
Sport England’s funding programme, Protecting Playing Fields ( PPF ) is part of their Places People Play Olympic legacy mass participation programme and is investing £10 million of National Lottery funding in community sports projects over three years from 2011-2014.
Delivering a mass participation legacy for sport from the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games is a top priority for the Government and Sport England.
To help achieve this, PPF will focus on protecting and improving playing fields and developing community sport.
Through this programme, Sport England intend to fund up to 400 projects for playing field improvements that will contribute to both retaining and increasing participants in sport across England at the local level.
The programme will fund capital projects that create, develop and improve playing fields for sporting and community use and offer long term protection of the site for sport.
