Important Ecominds announcement - implementation of closing dates
The Ecominds scheme, funded by the Big Lottery Fund's Changing Spaces programme, has been overwhelmingly successful in its first year and as a result have had to put closing dates on the remaining application sizes. The closing dates are:
Large bids (£60,001 to £150,000)
12:00 noon Friday 30 October 2009
Medium bids (20,001 to £60,000)
12:00 noon Friday 8 January 2010
Small bids (£0 to £20,000)
12:00 noon Wednesday 30 June 2010
The Ecominds scheme is already oversubscribed in the Flagship, Large, and Medium categories and we recognise the considerable effort involved in planning an Ecominds application. You should therefore bear in mind the high levels of interest and the strong competition for funding before deciding to invest time and effort in submitting an application.
We want groups to submit the best bid they can and address all the assessment criteria. We do not want applicants to rush their bids and then see this reflected in their reasons for rejection if particular issues have not been addressed. If your project is rejected you will not be able to resubmit. Take your time and ensure your bid is in before the closing date. Regardless of when you submit your application the process will be competitive.
