Potential Loans Programme
In addition to the allocation of up to £23m in grants, the Independent Board of the Sport Winter Survival Package have approved the mobilisation of a loans programme to support urgent infrastructure requirements of Rugby clubs at Levels 3 and below. This will also be needs-based, to support essential infrastructure for survival and sustainability.
We aim to provide further information on this next week to gauge the levels of interest in the loan scheme. Again, timeframes for initial (non-binding) response will be tight and the deadline for an initial indication of interest will also be Thursday 25 February.
