Grant administration and contracting with recipients
Track 1: Start‑up support
Groups being awarded business development support will not need to sign any contracts. Co‑operatives UK will contract an agreed support package with one of it’s providers, who will then make contact to deliver the agreed support.
Track 2: Development grants
Development grant applications. Once a grant is awarded by the panel, a Grant Offer Letter (GOL) is sent to the beneficiary via Docusign. Once the beneficiary and Co‑operatives UK signatories have completed this, a completed signed version is sent to all parties.
The grant recipient needs to return a certified bank statement.
