We only received partial funding – what do we do with that?

As you develop your project plan and budget, consider if and how the project could proceed without full funding or without funding at all. Applicants are required to indicate both the total funding amount requested as well as the minimum amount of funding that is needed to deliver the project as outlined in your project proposal. (These amounts can be the same or different.) Applicants may also consider having a ‘Plan B’ in place for a scaled-back version of the event/project/initiative that would still allow a project to move ahead if only partial funding is awarded. If the funding amount offered is not sufficient, or is no longer sufficient, applicants can decline the funding.
