Funding FAQs
Contact Karl Lingham, the County Development Manager to outline your thoughts and plans. There are a number of factors to consider when developing a project of this nature so discussing these will help you shape and define your project idea. Not all project ideas are viable so discussing your idea at the outset might save you precious time and money.
Football's contribution comes from the Football Foundation. This charity is funded by the FA, the Government, via the DCMS and the Premier League. However, projects are required to exhaust all other sources of funding for their project as a contribution to the overall costs.

Please contact Hertfordshire FA County Development Manager, Karl Lingham, weekdays from 9am - 5pm.
