Submit your application

The Application Form is to be completed by applicants wishing to apply for HNIP funding. HNIP is a two-stage process made up of a pre-application to determine project eligibility, followed by a full application. During the full application stage projects will be assessed against the HNIP scored criteria as part of a competitive process to establish which ones best demonstrate value for money and contribute to the aims and objectives of the HNIP scheme. To ensure that only high-quality schemes are awarded HNIP funding, only successful pre-application projects will be eligible to submit a full application.

Applications will need to be submitted through the Data and Application System (DAS). To submit your pre-application, you will first need to register an account. This process is explained fully in the Guidance Document.

Application Dates

Applicants are encouraged to submit their pre-application as early as possible and to complete their applications as soon as their project is sufficiently developed.
