  1. Completed applications are accepted in the two months preceding the deadline date.

    The deadline for the first round of the Fund is 31st October 2021, and the assessment panel will meet shortly after this date to determine a shortlist. Once the successful applications have been decided upon, all applicants, including unsuccessful ones, will be notified and funds distributed. There is no limit to the number of times an unsuccessful applicant can apply.
  2. The funds available for the first round are approximately £500.
  3. Funding requests should be for short-term activities or one-off projects which have not yet begun. The end date for the activity or project should be 31st October 2022 or earlier. The project’s beneficiaries must be the Muswell Hill community and not limited to an individual or a small number of individuals.
  4. If funded, the organisation will be required to demonstrate evidence of expenditure of the funds. If the expenditure on the project is lower than expected, the organisation will be required to return the balance of the funds to the MHFGA.
  5. If and when relevant, applicants may need to demonstrate that their project and activities are covered by appropriate insurance, comply with health and safety regulations and fulfil equality and diversity requirements.
  6. Funded organisations are required to give regular updates throughout the project (minimum of every two months) and to complete an evaluation at the completion of the project. The MHFGA may use information on the project in publicity material for promotional purposes.
  7. If a funded project does not go ahead or is substantially delayed or altered, or the funds are not spent in a timely or prudent way, or are not spent in accordance with what was described on the application form, the organisation will be required to return the funds in full to the MHFGA.
