Community Grant Scheme
The Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) recognises how important it is for the local communities around each of the FIFA World Cup 2022™ stadiums to benefit, both socially and culturally, from the amazing projects taking place… for generations to come.
'The Community Grant Scheme will enable the SC to support projects which complement our vision, values and objectives. The schemes we endorse will ensure the Middle East's first FIFA World Cup leaves a lasting social legacy. We look forward to supporting projects which will make a positive difference to communities across Qatar.'

By welcoming the world to their neighborhood, communities will gain advanced facilities, a major economic boost and a front-row seat for the world's favorite sporting event.
Going beyond that, the SC offers grants to projects that can improve quality of life, health and wellbeing in their neighborhoods.
This is part of our wider community engagement efforts, which actively encourage Qatar's residents to contribute ideas to FIFA World Cup 2022™ planning, and the legacy the tournament will leave behind.
Grants of up to QAR 30,000 are available to support groups and organisations, including expat associations, local environmental groups, recreational and social clubs, sporting clubs, arts groups and educational establishments. Individuals with ideas that can help their neighbours are also welcome to submit applications.
Mohamed Qutub is an individual who had a big idea – one that has since had a huge impact on a community that is integral to Qatar's future. He played a key role in developing the Qatar Indian Association for Sports and Games which, with the help of an SC community grant, has improved the lives of many in the 500,000-plus Indian community in Qatar.
