Stage One applications
**The deadline for Stage One applications was noon on Friday 20 September 2019**
Please be aware that this year’s funding application process is different from previous years.
Stage One is a competitive round. Applications have been scored according to the published CCF criteria and the strongest project proposals have been invited to proceed to Stage Two. Applicants that were declined at Stage One are not able to re-apply in this round of funding.
Reasons for Stage One Applications being declined and not invited to proceed to Stage Two have included, but are not limited to:
- Ineligible applicant organisation - view eligible organisations here
- Not clearly meeting all four of the CCF key project criteria - view the criteria here
- Containing ineligible elements - view more about what the CCF can fund here
- Unclear or underdeveloped ideas
- Not having a sufficiently competitive proposal
