Sport North Herts grants: larger, but fewer

A change in the criteria used to distribute sports grants to talented individuals and coaches was announced this evening at the Sport North Herts meeting.

With a limited budget SNH had been concerned that the largest grants they could offer - even to international athletes - was only about £180, which seemed too small to be of any real help to those that needed funding help the most. As a result SNH plans to significantly increase the level of grants offered - but in order to do so they will be raising the minimum level of achievement required to qualify for awards.

As a result SNH awards will now only be available to people playing at regional level or above who do not have any other significant awards (ie. lottery funding, etc.) - county level athletes will no longer be eligible. So if you have played, or are likely to play, for the county team this season and were planning to apply for an award because of that... save yourself a stamp!

SNH grants are awarded every six months (applications close in June and December - see NHDC website for more details), however, so if any of you do make the regional squad in January you will be able to apply for an award then.
