This scheme provides loans to clubs to help finance capital projects which contribute to the recruitment and retention of community rugby players.

Clubs at level 4 and below are eligible to apply. The maximum loan available is £100,000. Loans are available on a ‘stand alone’ basis, but projects are considered stronger if they include additional funding (internally or externally generated).

Loan applications of up to £50,000 can be made in conjunction with Groundmatch grant applications. Loans will be interest free and the maximum loan period will be 15 years. Security will be required for the loan scheme, either in the form of a charge over property or personal guarantees.

Value: Up to £100,000. Maximum loan period is 15 years
