After you apply

We'll let you know if your application is successful within four months of receiving a complete application.

If we need more information from you we'll be in touch.

If your application is successful we'll send you an award letter. It'll tell you how much we'll pay you and when.

If your application is unsuccessful, we'll let you know why.

Submitting progress reports

We'll ask you to send us regular reports throughout the project so that we can release the funding to you. We'll agree reporting periods with you based on your grant delivery plan.

This is for you to tell us about your project's performance and progress.

At the end of the project you'll need to send us a final report. 

We may also evaluate your project three years after it ends. This is for you to tell us how your project is delivering on longer term changes you may have told us about.
