Grants & Loans

The Rugby Football Union set up a Limited Company Charity in 2003 called the Rugby Football Foundation (RFF).

Helping Hand Grants

The 'Helping Hand Grant' provides a mechanism for clubs to apply for a small grant of between £500 - £1,500 for eligible Capital Projects (for example a new set of rugby posts, redecorating the changing rooms etc) with the club matching the grant on a £ for £ basis.

Groundmatch Grant Scheme

The Groundmatch Scheme provides easy-to-access grant funding for capital projects which contribute to the recruitment and retention of community rugby players. A list of projects which qualify for a grant ('Qualifying Projects') is given in the Guidance Notes but the list is not exhaustive; it is the overall objective of the project which is important.

Green Deal Loans

RFF Green Deal loans up to the value of £20,000 are available to clubs to support them in the installation of facility solutions that reduce utility costs. Green Deal Loan repayments are structured to be the equivalent of the projected savings over the agreed ‘payback’ period.
