The Project Process Overview


As each funding organisation will have a different application process, the Resource Kit has been designed to be independent of a particular funding approach, yet sufficiently flexible to fit any funding application need. Each of the key project documents is designed to be used by an implementing agency in support of a funding application. We would expect the funding agency to also require applicants to complete their own funder-specific funding application documents.

Funders also have different project funding models, i.e. funding of different stages together or separately. The six stage approach of the Resource Kit allows it to be applied to any funding model.

Typical funding models used include:

  • Funding an entire project from idea to completion in one go (Project Selection to Sustaining the Project)


  • Funding the Project Selection and Feasibility Study stages, followed by funding the Project Design to Sustaining the Project stages.


  • Funding 1

    Funding 2

  • Funding the Project Selection to the Project Design stages, followed by funding the Operational Planning to Sustaining the Project stages.
