What's Happening with Applications? (13/01/10)

We aim to carry out eligibility checks and acknowledge your application within 2 weeks.

When your application is acknowledged, we will then ask that you complete and submit a financial projections form. An electronic version of this form can be accessed in the 'How to Apply' section of our website and returned to us by email.  If you are an existing organisation, we will also ask that you submit copies of your most recent accounts over two years.  If we do not receive this information your application will be assessed based on the information provided.

Upon receipt of your financial information, we will be in contact with you to arrange a site visit to gather additional project details which will enable staff to complete an economic appraisal on your project. A copy of the checklist is also available to download in 'How to Apply'; this will give you an outline of the documents you will be asked to provide and the type of information we will require to support your application.  You are strongly advised to consider this in preparation for this visit.

Finally your application will be assessed by Lagan Rural Partnership against set selection criteria. 

Please note that the submission of an application for financial assistance, an acknowledgement, or the completion of an assessment process does not indicate that your application is eligible for consideration or that the project will be awarded financial assistance.

Just to remind you, work should not commence on the project before you receive and accept a formal Letter of Offer of financial assistance from Lagan Rural Partnership. No payment will be made in respect of any work undertaken on the project before the date the Letter of Offer was signed as accepted.

Should you require any further clarification on the process at this time, please contact the Lagan Rural Partnership office on 028 9250 9419 or
