England and Wales Cricket Trust - Interest Free Loan Scheme
The England and Wales Cricket Trust welcomes eligible ECB affiliated cricket clubs with junior sections to consider an interest-free loan to assist in the development of facilities on their ground(s).
Whether it is a sightscreen or a changing room* the England and Wales Cricket Trust will allocate interest-free loans to clubs that meet set criteria up to £50,000 with a repayment period of up to five years.
Clubs with as little as 25 per cent partnership funding can apply (repayments quarterly throughout the term of the loan).
The scheme is open to any ECB affiliated cricket club with a junior section who has a passion to be part of a modern dynamic sport development programme and is willing to complete, deliver and update a simple development plan.
To express an interest clubs should submit in writing a brief explanation of their project and an account of their current status regarding junior development to their County Cricket Development Manager.
Application forms will only be issued to cricket clubs that have met set criteria which will be assessed by their Regional Funding and Facilities Manager.
