We are delighted to inform clubs about the launch of the 2024 ECB County Grants Fund in Derbyshire.
The County Grants Fund aims to support affiliated cricket clubs to create welcoming environments, provide enhanced facilities and playing opportunities, and to help clubs tackle the impact of climate change.
Priority will be given to applications from clubs that are actively engaged with ECB programmes (All Stars, Dynamos, Women’s and Girls’ Cricket and/ or Disability Cricket).
DCF have created a local guidance document HERE as a one stop shop for all the information you will need to make an application. The guidance covers:
- DCF process and timeline
- DCF strategic priorities
- Club Criteria
- Links and access to further information, guidance and supporting documentation. Such as:
- Full ECB Guidance notes
- Guidance on how to use the IMS system
- Creating Welcoming Environments Guide
- ECB Facilities Review Checklist
- ECB Energy Saving Guide
The DCF and ECB guidance and resources can help all clubs in identifying projects which will remove barriers to participation in cricket and help everyone feel more welcome.
Here at DCF we want projects to improve experiences, both on and off the field for ALL our participants.
Please read our Derbyshire Guidance document HERE in full as well as the ECB guidance (link within the Derbyshire Guidance) to fully familiarise yourself with the process before making an application
