Our application system is temporarily closed until 10 April 2017.

What does this mean for applicants?

You will be unable to begin a new application until 10 April 2017.

Why is this happening?

We are renewing our strategic direction which will result in some changes to the application process.

We will keep you updated as the changes are implemented in 2017.

Before you apply, find out if we can fund your project and what you need to do.
