Funding process

Planning your project

If you are interested in developing a Connecting project and applying for funding, consider the following questions as you begin your planning process and develop your concept summary.

  • Can you briefly describe the project and the key activities?
  • What need does your project respond to and how have you identified this need?
  • Who is the intended audience?
  • How do you plan to reach the audience? What methods will you use and why?
  • How will your project improve the capacity of community organizations to provide legal information and referral? How will the project improve access to justice for people who do not speak English or French or who live in rural or remote communities?
  • Who are your project partners? What is the lead agency and why is it suited to lead the project?
  • How will your project be adapted by or useful to others in the future? How can your project be continued in the future?
  • What are your resource needs and estimated costs?
  • What is the time frame for the project?
