Applying for SBFLAG funding

The application consists of two stages and the SBFLAG staff are on hand to help you at any point during the application process.

The FLAG can only fund projects that have not started yet. If work has already begun on any element of the project, then you will not be eligible for funding. Projects must align with the FLAG key themes and objectives and the beneficiaries and outputs of your project must be primarily within the FLAG operational area.

FLAG funding is given on a reimbursement basis and approved funding will be reimbursed upon evidence of project spend. However you can claim throughout projects, stage by stage, if you need to.

Projects are assessed by the SBFLAG Members made up of local stakeholders from the local fisheries industry, local authorities and other related organisations. We do keep applications as anonymous as possible throughout the application process. Projects will only be made public if they are approved for funding.

Stage 1 - The first stage is to submit an Project Idea Form (PIF). Complete the PIF and submit to the SBFLAG. Complete as much information as possible on the form as it is helpful to be as detailed as possible at this stage so that we can accurately assess your project idea. However, if you do not have all the information at this time, do not be put off, complete the PIF as the SBFLAG Animateur can help you collate the information required. They will check eligibility and, if eligible, an anonymous summary of the PIF will be forwarded to the FLAG board for initial comments, suggestions or improvements.

Stage 2 - If, following the SBFLAG Meeting your PIF has been approved, you will be asked to complete a full application providing further detail around your project idea. This will include a detailed breakdown of costs, a project plan showing tasks and timelines, etc. Full details of requirements are included on the application.
