Post Assessment of Application
Once the RADF Committee has reached agreement on which grant applications should be recommended and for what level of funding, the RADF Liaison Officer will present the recommendations to Council for ratification.
Council can veto recommendations, but only when they:
- are not in line with council’s cultural policy
- interfere with council initiatives already in progress.
Once Council has ratified the recommendations, the RADF Liaison Officer prepares:
- contracts for successful applicants
- letters for the unsuccessful applicants
- the method of payment.
