Please make sure you send us all the information we ask for: we can’t make a payment until we have everything we need.

How to claim your grant

The first payment
You must request your grant in writing. We outline what information you will need to send us in order to claim your grant in our information and responsibilities sheets – this varies depending on whether it is a capital or revenue grant, or whether the grant is going towards an existing post or a new post, for example. You will always need to send us a copy of a recent bank statement when you write to us requesting the first payment of a grant – we make grant payments by direct transfer to your bank account and need a copy of a bank statement to confirm your bank details.

Second and subsequent payments
Our information and responsibilities sheets for capital grants, revenue grants and grants towards salaries explain what information you need to send us in order to request payment of the next instalment of your grant. We send out a reminder that a report is due a month before we expect to make a grant payment, but it is important to note that we will not make the payment until we have received a satisfactory report and all the financial information we ask for.
