Grant policies

We are currently preparing the policies for both the Local Restrictions Support Grant (Closed) Addendum and the Additional Restrictions Grant.  

When these policies are available, we will update this web page. 

In the meantime, you can still complete a grant application. We are processing all Local Restrictions Support Grant - (Closed) Addendum grants, but will hold onto any Additional Restrictions Grants until we have finalised our policies.
