After you have sent the application form to us, we will check that it is complete and that it meets all the basic criteria. If it does not, then we will return it to you, asking for amendments or for an explanation as to why it does not meet the criteria. If you need extra support with your application, please contact Hull CVS who will be happy to assist you:
Once your application is complete it will be sent to the grants panel for assessment.
The panel meets at least 4 times a year to recommend projects for funding; a list of the panel dates (together with application closing dates) can be found on the About the Panel page.
When selecting proposals for funding, we will be considering the following questions:
After the meeting, we will email you to let you know the outcome of your application.
If your project has been recommended for funding, we will notify CDF; CDF is the national organisation that is delivering the Community First programme on behalf of the government. They will contact you directly to arrange funding.
If you are successful, stay in touch and send us photos/stories to show how you are getting on!
