Application deadline dates

Our independent Grants Panel meets throughout the year to consider grant applications. Organisations can apply at any time but please be aware that you will need to meet our deadline dates if you wish your application to be considered at a particular panel meeting.

All grant applications, along with any supporting documentation, must be received by 12 noon on the deadline day.

Expression of Interest forms received within 3 weeks of a published grant application deadline date, are very unlikely to be processed in time to enable you to meet the grant application deadline.   


Loan applications are considered by our independent Credit Committee which meets at various times of the year. There are no deadline dates for loan applications.
