We also advise you to read through Our Grant Funds page and Programme Areas page to ensure you are fully aware of the funding opportunities available.

Application Process

Depending on the Grant Fund you are applying for, there is either a single-stage or two-stage application process.  

For the School Holiday Activity Fund, Cultural Capital Fund, Refurbishment Fund: Small Grant and Capacity Building Grant Funds, we operate a one-stage application process and for the Main Grant, Schools in Partnership, Bursary and Refurbishment Fund: Main Grant we operate a two-stage application process. 

Please note that it takes at least six months for the application process to be completed, so please bear in mind when your project is due to take place and apply in plenty of time.
