NHF Process:

There is a two stage application process. In the first stage applicants must submit a project overview form which gives a summary of the project.
Forms may be submitted by post or by email to Forms submitted after the deadline will not be considered.
Trustees consider the project overviews and decide whether to invite applicants to submit a full application form. We do not give feedback on unsuccessful applications.
