Opportunities to talk to our Grants Team


In most instances, the Expression of Interest process is the best and most suitable way of starting to apply for funding. The process is designed to provide an easy way for you to check if you are eligible for funding and what funds might be available. The EOI is the first and most appropriate step for most groups.

Q&A Sessions

Our Q&A Sessions are 30-60 minute Zoom meetings that give you the opportunity to hear a bit about CFSurrey and ask any questions about applying to us.
