The Application Process for the Sustaining Tenancies Fund has 2 stages;
1. Expression of Interest
This is a short form which will enable the Housing Executive to determine the:
- suitability and
- strategic relevance of the project
The eligibility check will ensure that the Housing Executive can fund the project.
A panel of Housing Executive staff will review the submission. They will decide if a project will progress to stage 2.
We aim to make a decision around two weeks after we have received all Expressions of Interest. The closing date for their submission is 9th December 2021.
2. Full Application and Showcase
We will ask successful stage 1 projects to complete a full application form. You must then provide more detail about the:
- project plan and
- breakdown of costs
We may ask the group or organisation to showcase their project to one of our funding panels.
In Tranche 1, your project showcase will be online over video call.
This is an informal setting, and an opportunity for you to share your passion for your project.
You can use any props that you would like. And you may invite anyone to attend with you. For example, you may wish to bring the full project team, or a service user to provide a testimonial.
This stage will take around 4 weeks from beginning to end. You should receive a funding decision within 5 working days.
