Additional items to consider is quality and quantity of the project. A strong budget including revenue, partnerships, collaboration and the overall impact of the project.
The community sport grant deadlines are currently September 1st & March 1st each year, they will be changing to August 1st and February 1st. Starting in August 2014. Decisions on community grants normally take place about 4-6 weeks after the deadline has passed, which would put them in September and March each year, (as opposed to October and April as we do now).
