Applying for a grant is a two stage process, an Outline Application followed by a full application. You have to complete an Outline Application and it needs to be accepted before you can complete a Full Application.
Your Outline Application will be cheked for eligibility against the requirements of the programme (see Applicants' Manual) and will be appraised to ensure deliverability, and the level of outputs that can be achieved. This is a competitive process and we will be looking for projects that have high outputs for the costs involved.
If your Outline Application is accepted you will be invited to complete a full application. This will require a lot of detail about your project, including all statutory consents required, quotes in place and details of your organisation. When completed your application will be processed within 40 days, after which you will be told if you are successful or not.
