Fund title: Get Fishing Fund
Focus of fund/fund aims:
Grants up to £5,000 to support projects that will run safe angling participation events throughout 2021
12 March 2021
The Environment Agency and Angling Trust have announced a new £100,000 ‘Get Fishing Fund’ to encourage more people to give fishing a go for the first time, or get back into angling after a break from the sport.
The Get Fishing Fund will provide grants to help angling clubs and other organisations to put on a range of fishing activities to encourage new anglers through the 2021 season. The grants can be used to help the delivery of future angling participation events, including any additional equipment needed to ensure fisheries are following Covid-19 safety guidelines, PPE and signage. It can also cover the costs of fishing equipment, terminal tackle and bait, as well as event resources including promotional material, gazebos and basic storage facilities. There are grants of up to £500 for small-scale projects and up to £5,000 for large-scale projects.
Angling clubs, coaches and fisheries as well as non-angling organisations such as schools, local authorities or charities can apply.
