Grant Deadlines and Timescales

All grant applications come in the first instance to the Grants Manager, whose role is to manage the grant schemes.
If projects are eligible the Grants Advisory Panel, made up of independent members from throughout the county, then assess them at area level. Their recommendations are then taken to the Trust.

The Trustees meet three times a year and once approval has been gained an approval letter is sent confirming the decision and also enclosing the Entrust forms to be checked and signed by your project contact. Completed forms are then returned to the Grants Manager who submits them to ENTRUST, the government regulator, for their approval.

Once the project is registered with Entrust, a formal offer letter is issued containing an acceptance form. Once this acceptance form has been received work can commence on the project. Grant payments are paid on completion of the project. Please note we cannot retrospectively fund projects.
