Anyone else awaiting 30 hours capital funding decision?

I've been working on the assumption that "by December" means sometime in November, only 11 days left!! Our LA that submitted the application said they haven't heard anything at all but glad to hear it's not just us who's still in the dark! Good luck to everyone that has applied.

Was there the ability to Apple directly to the DfE? We only completed an Expression of Interest via our local authority earlier in the year but have heard nothing since.

application had to be made through LA. There was a extremely short time frame in June/July

Heard from the DFE yesterday and they said you would hear in December and have monies in Jan 17

Oh great, thanks for the update hali, I had half hoped we might hear tomorrow as it's the Autumn budget but maybe not then. Any details on how/where you got this info would be really helpful, thanks again!

thanks for update. did you enquire directly to DFE?

does anyone know what conditions/contract will be?

Littlesparkle, the only condition I know of is that the 30 hours funding places which the grant creates need to be up and running by Sept 2017. I seem to remember being told that the LA would administer the grants and I guess oversee the projects to ensure the deadline is met. I hope that if/when an offer of a grant has been made that it is guaranteed as we need to place the order for our timber building ideally before January in order to keep to the time scale. This will mean putting in our own funds so we need to be sure that we will definitely be getting the grant on time.

Our LA could submit 8 bids and they didn't total the full allowance that could be applied for so I'm waiting very impatiently with everything crossed and everything crossed for everyone else too..... who's betting they make us wait till last day of December !
