- COVID-19 considerations: you will need to factor in assumptions about social distancing and these assumptions should not entail significant financial risks for your organisation. Please refer to national and local guidance and restrictions about incorporating public health measures into your assumptions.
- Risk: when assessing your application, they will make a measured judgement on the potential risks your project might face due to the current pandemic situation. You should also carefully consider contingency costs within your application.
