On 18 March 2008 the WIA published a release highlighting the changes to the WIA Club Grant Scheme, and in particular that there will be two categories of projects that will be supported.
Geoff Atkinson - VK3AFA - WIA Secretary
In particular, one category will be for useful but not innovative projects or activities, including projects involving repeaters or associated links. The WIA will support up to three projects in this category, with grants up to a total of $3,000.
It will be up to the Grant Committee to decide how much of the money available will be recommended for each project recommend in this category.
The other category will be for projects or activities that are innovative. The WIA will support up to three projects in this category, with grants up to a total of $3,000.
Again, it will be up to the Grant Committee to decide how much of the money available will be recommended
The Club Grant Scheme Rules have been amended to allow the Board to make these changes to the scheme. The Rules can be found on the WIA website, as can a useful template setting out the suggested application headings for an executive summary identifying how the club seeks to meet the objectives of the scheme in the category is has selected. Clubs are urged to carefully read both documents.
The WIA Board has now decided that the closing date for applications for grants this year will be Monday 28 July 2008.
