Funding Notifications & Contracts
If the project is approved, IAF will inform the applicant of the details of the decision and any associated terms and conditions. The applicant then enters into an agreement with IAF which outlines the obligations of each party.
Funding is application and project-specific and must be used for the approved project and related expenses. Funds are non-transferable.
Project activities requiring financial resources cannot commence until the contribution agreement has been signed by both the applicant and IAF. All project activities and expenditures must be approved prior to commencing – retroactive costs will not be considered.
Funding decisions will be issued one month after each review batch deadline. Projects may begin on or after this date. For example, projects submitted prior to the May 23, 2023 deadline may begin on or after June 23, 2023. All projects must be completed within 24 months of starting and all projects approved through the program must complete by March 31, 2026. If the project is not approved, the applicant will receive a written response from IAF.
