If your project is awarded a grant from the Nordic Culture Fund, you will receive an e-mail stipulating the amount and the conditions attached. Throughout the process, you can track and manage your project via My Page, including requesting payment of instalments, lodging final reports etc, by using the same username you stipulated when you submitted your application.
The Fund will pay the grant in one or two instalments, depending on the size of the grant and the type and length of the project:
As a general rule, payment must be requested no later than one year after the date you received the decision from the Fund.
All projects for which funding has been granted Project Funding before 2020 will follow the previous payment model until the conclusion of the project.
When you send the first payment request via My Page, remember to attach a bank verification letter confirming that the account to which you wish to receive payment belongs to you or the project receiving the grant. This is a special document from the bank.
There may be specific conditions attached to your funding. You must meet these conditions before we are able to pay out your grant. The specific conditions are stated in the grant decision email from the Fund.
If you are asked to submit an updated budget, we recommend using the Fund’s budget and accounting template. The document can later be updated and submitted as the accounts for the final report.
Funding may be used only for the purposes described in the application. Significant changes to the submitted application must be approved in advance by the Fund’s secretariat. For example, significant changes in:
You must also contact the Fund if you want to assign formal responsibility for the project to someone else, or if you replace the project lead. Minor changes to participants, timetable or programme do not require approval by the Secretariat.
You can contact the Fund’s secretariat via your profile on My Page or by writing to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
