Submitting an application
Once the maximum fund is allocated, no further bids will be assessed. Bidders must submit the application form and any required supporting documents by the specified time. Bidders must also specify the start date and end date of the planned project event or activity.
Applications forms will be assessed according to the aims, conditions and criteria specified here. The proposals will be assessed by the Homes For Ukraine Community Grant Scheme Panel (the Assessment Panel).
Application forms must be submitted by email to HomesForUkraine@lancashire.gov.uk
Please note the following:
- Decisions will be made at the absolute discretion of the panel. The panel makes no guarantee as to the number of awards it will make.
- The panel reserve the right, at their discretion, to call bidders for a face-to-face, telephone or video informal interview as part of the assessment process, to seek clarifications or to request any further information.
- Panel decisions will be communicated to all relevant bidders within the time specified above.
- Where a proposal is unsuccessful, but the panel believes that it has potential, the panel may decide to:
- Include the proposal, without any changes, in the next round of applications; or
- Request changes to the proposal and that it is submitted in a new form (this by no means guarantees the success of a revised proposal).
- The panel's decisions are final and there will be no appeals process. The panel will endeavour to explain constructively why a proposal was unsuccessful, but there is no obligation for it to do so.
- There is no minimum or maximum spend for each round of assessments, and the scheme carries no obligation to spend the full (maximum) amount assigned to it by the Lancashire Refugee Resettlement Programme.
