The table provides the key dates to aid your application and enable you to plan the delivery of your project.

If you are successful, you will receive a Conditional Grant Offer letter requesting specific information such as quotes, permissions, and licences.

Once we have received that information back and, subject to all the checks having been made satisfactorily, we will issue you with a final Grant Funding Agreement which you will need to sign and return. 

Your project can start on the date you sign and return your final grant offer letter.

We will not accept, or consider any applications received after the closing date of 28 June 2024 at midday.

Please note we cannot fund projects that have already started. You will be liable for any costs incurred before any firm grant offer letter is issued.
