You can still pay Council Tax and parking fines online. But some payment forms aren't working. We'll fix this as soon as possible.


Sports, leisure & the Arts Greater Manchester Sport Grants and Funding

Grants to apply for

For many sports clubs, attracting funding is a key part of their development.

There are a variety of sport grants that sports clubs and organisations can apply for, grants available from us are: 

  • Neighbourhood Sports Fund - this fund is only for Manchester Sports Clubs seeking to grow and sustain participation in sport. Sports Development has 19 focus sports and applications must be from one of these sports. Read the guidance notes before completing an application form;
  • Champions Charter - there are two types of funding available, the Athletes Fund and the Coach Development Fund; and 
  • Neighbourhood Investment Funding (NIF) - this is open to formal established groups, voluntary groups and other community groups, as well as groups of residents working together for the first time. School PTAs can also apply if they have the support of local residents and parents and their project will benefit the wider community and not just the school. Find out more about neighbourhood investment funds.
