Over the past four years the WRU has invested over £2.5 million into clubs via the Foundation for Sports and the Arts, the Millennium Stadium Charitable Trust, and Welsh Government Strategic Regeneration Funds.
As part of an additional £3.5million funding initiative to help improve rugby both on and off the field, £500,000 has been committed to a WRU Club Facilities Grant which clubs can apply for and an extra £200,000 one-off fund will be split between clubs to reward recruitment initiatives.
Club Facilities Grants ranging from £2,500 to £50,000 will be available to clubs which put forward plans for development programmes and initiatives approved by the WRU. A percentage of the grants will be awarded to individual club and community-based initiatives, with an element of match funding needed, while the more substantial amounts will go to joint bids or initiatives which will benefit the wider area.
The recruitment grant aid will help clubs, amongst other things, to form additional teams and will be linked to the 'Join the Beat' campaign - a WRU project aimed at helping clubs recruit more players, coaches, administrators and volunteers.
Details on both schemes can be accessed via the MYWRU website.
