Our program will not pit one council against another. We believe you deserve funding. We don’t have enough funds for everyone, and we don’t want to waste anyone’s time. So we’ve structured this more like a lottery than a competition, requiring what we hope is a minimal amount of effort in order to apply.
Given current funding levels, we expect to fund ten groups in the two-year pilot program. As additional funds are raised, we will be able to support more councils.
