We received an extremely high number of applications during phase one, in a very short space of time. This resulted in the application process closing after 90 minutes. We are accepting 100 applications for this phase of funding, and anticipate a similar situation where the application process will close in a short space of time. If you intend on applying, please check out the eligibility criteria in advance of the application process so you can be as prepared as possible.
