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.

  • What is the lead agency and why is it suited to lead the project? Who are your project partners? What will these partners bring to the project?
  •  Can you briefly describe the project and the key activities?
  • Does it meet the criteria of working with communities that don’t speak English or French, and/or rural and remote communities?
  • Who will be trained?
  • What legal information topics will be covered?
  • What strategies will you use to deliver the training?
  • Why did you choose to do this project? What need does your project respond to and how have you identified this need?
  • How is this work different from the work of your agency and that of your partners?
  • How can your project be continued in the future? How will your project be adapted by or useful to others in the future?
