Recreation grants are available to support projects which will benefit people within their free time. Many projects under this theme also have elements of the other three themes within them; Biffa Award tends to receive more applications under this theme than others. As of May 2017 they will no longer fund sporting facilities- This includes but is not limited to: cricket nets, floodlights, bowling greens, other pitch groundwork
Biffa Award applications are a two stage process.
Stage One: Expression of Interest
Stage Two: Full application
The full application is then considered by the Biffa Award Board. The Biffa Award Board meets three times annually. At each meeting the Board considers applications from two of the three project themes, with each theme being considered twice annually.
The deadline for Stage One: Expression of Interest forms, is one month prior to the Stage Two application deadline, to be considered at the Board meeting.
