Project start and end dates

When you apply for funding, it's important to be clear about your project start and end dates. Projects should be completed within the time frame of the funding pool.

Earliest project start date

You can start your project before you've received confirmation that your grant has been approved. You will, however, only be able to claim project costs from the funding decision date onwards (see the calendar above for details).

If your project needs to start before the funding decision date, contact our funding team advisor.

Project end date

Projects must be completed within the time frame of the funding pool.
