However, applicants should be aware that there is a limited amount of funding available and as such THET is unlikely to fund more than one project per partnership. Applicants are encouraged to focus on quality rather than quantity.
Applicants should complete their grant application form and budget template collaboratively and submit these documents, along with letters of support from each of the lead partners and any managing partners, in one email to AGP@thet.org.
