Grant/Project life Cycle

Generate Idea Find Funding Develop Proposal Route and Submit Proposal Setup and Manage Project Close Out Project


A project often has a beginning middle and end. This goes from idea generation, finding a funding or support mechanism, through developing and submitting a proposal, then managing the project and closing it out. This project lifecycle we have represented by the image at the right. Your entry into a project may start at any point in this cycle.

To help you in your project, we have organized our resources around these different stages.
