Step 2: Complete your application

Prior to starting your application, we recommend that you read our frequently asked questions which are updated on a regular basis to reflect the most commonly asked questions each month.

Step 3: Assessing your application

Once the current funding round closes, your application will be assessed and if additional information is required to make your application compliant, an assessor will contact you via email to request this information.

Upon receiving a request for additional information, you will be given 3 working days to provide this information. Failure to provide the additional information within the requested timeframe may result in your application being declined.

Step 4: Board Consideration

The Grassroots Trust Central Limited Board generally meets every month to review grant applications.

The full grant results will be uploaded to our website within 48 hours of the meeting, and individual outcome letters emailed to each Applicant within one week of the meeting.

If your application is partially or fully declined, the reason for this decline will be communicated via our published results and in your outcome letter.

If your application is partially or fully funded, payment of this grant funding will be made within one month of the application being approved.

Funds received must be used for the approved specific purpose and payment must occur after the approval date.
