The funding and grants maze can sometimes seem confusing or overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. All organisations and clubs need financial support for facilities, infrastructure and equipment in order to service their participants, volunteers, supporters and staff.  Grants are available, but are generally given for specific programs or projects, not for operating costs.
