The review process for requests for less than $25,000 takes approximately 6 to 8 weeks. Requests for funding over multiple years or in an amount exceeding $25,000 are reviewed on a quarterly basis and may take up to 90 days for a final decision.
Please note, due to the volume of requests received, we are unable to respond to telephone or email enquiries about the status of pending requests.
