Three separate funds are available.

The return to football fund is available to help clubs re-start or create new football activity, and £2.1m has been made available by the FA and Sport England, using National Lottery funding.

The grass pitch maintenance fund can help clubs with the upkeep of their turf with their share from the £14m pot.
