Advice for applications:

– Include a phone number in your application. If you need funding, and your application is tabled because we cannot reach you to ask you questions, you will have to wait another two weeks before you hear back.
– You are welcome to present your application at the next FMC meeting. This can often save time because it allows to ask questions and give feedback immediately.
NOTE: You do not receive a confirmation upon submission of your application. Please do not send duplicates.
