How to claim your grant
The schedule for your grant claim submissions will be outlined in your Offer Letter and Grant Funding Agreement. You must follow this schedule, unless otherwise agreed in writing by the New Forest LEADER Programme Manager. If you don’t, you may jeopardise your grant award.
Guidance on submitting your grant claim is available in the ‘Guide to Managing a Successful LEADER Project’ (G8). You will have been given this document when you met the LEADER Programme Manager to discuss the Grant Funding Agreement.
You must read the guidance before completing and submitting the Grant Claim Form, because if you claim for ineligible items or do not have the correct evidence to support your claim, you may jeopardise your grant award and/or have financial penalties imposed.
Please note: Cash payments must NOT be made for any items on which you wish to claim grant aid. This is because it is impossible to provide a satisfactory audit trail for cash payments. Any cash payments included on your grant claim will be rejected.
